Kitillä
Äkäslompolo / Ylläs
Levi

The area around Kittilä has some of its own tracks to offer in and around the town, some of which join up with the Levi network, and Ylläs to the west also has excellent tracks extending around its 7 fells.

Ruka

Ruka provides another dedicated cross country ski resort with some infrastructure to explore.

Lahti

Lahti provides tracks for a range of abilities.

Helsinki

Helsinki in the south probably suffers from lack of snow in recent years, but has been included for completeness of  information

Wilderness Skiing

For those looking for a little more adventure off the beaten track whilst being at one with nature, in Finland this is classed as a wilderness environment. Some of these areas do still have prepared tracks, whilst other will have more of an off-track approach. This information is currently being researched.
