Church cottages and old post road

Church cottages and old post road

We will have a car ride from Holiday Village Valle to the church cottages of Utsjoki. The cottages are the most valuable cultural heritage of Utsjoki, and the area has been inhabited since prehistoric times. The cottages were and some still are owned by the Sámi families, and the cottages originate in the early 19th century. In this area we can truly feel the atmosphere of the old times.

After visiting the church area, we will walk along the path that leads us up to the fells. A part of the trail was used by the mailmen hundreds of years ago. They walked over a hundred kilometers to get the mail delivered. The path will lead us up to the fells where a breathtaking scenery to the Norwegian mountain area opens up. Half way of the trip we will enjoy a warm lunch by open fire. Our guide will tell us about the local wildlife and plants during the trip. The hike is around ten kilometers and ends in Holiday Village Valle.
