Lake Kesänkijärvi 2571

Lake Kesänkijärvi is nestled in the heart of the magnificent Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park. The lake is easily accessible and suitable for example for family trips. You can park your car right next to the lake, and all services of Äkäslompolo village are nearby.

Stocking of rainbow trout takes place approximately four times a year. There is also whitefish in Lake Kesänkijärvi.  Ice fishing is a popular winter activity, and in summer you can fish either from the shore or from a boat.
