A hike that will give you some tips and tricks on how to survive in the wilderness as well as a breathtaking view of the Torne River and Jukkasjärvi.
Join our hike up to the best scenic lookout of the village, mount Puimunen. The hike takes you into the fairy-tale forests of Jukkasjärvi where an experienced wilderness guide lets you in on the most important knowledge to survive and orient yourself in the wilderness, such as what herbs you are able to eat and what animals you are likely to spot in the forests around Icehotel. You continue uphill through the primeval forest while you experience the magnificent Arctic nature at close range. At the top, your reward is waiting – a mile-wide view of Jukkasjärvi and the Torne River. We build a fire with the help of a steel fire striker, make our own coffee, and rest our legs while we take in the view.
