Stage description

N.B.: We don't have an English description of the stage just yet. We'll give you the German version for now until the English version is ready.

Auf dieser Etappe folgt man größtenteils dem felsigen Ufer des Kopmajoki. Insgesamt dreimal muss der Fluss auf dieser Etappe gequert und an allen drei Etappen ist es angeraten, die Watschuhe anzuziehen. Nachdem man die Quellseen des Flusses passiert hat, geht es auf einfachem Terrain allmählich bergab, teilweise entlang der ATV-Spuren, zum Pihtsusjärvi mit der gleichnamigen Hütte. Da diese Hütte auf dem Weg zum Halti liegt, findet man hier viele Wanderer, die den höchsten Gipfel Finnlands besteigen wollen oder gerade vom Gipfel zurück kommen.
