Pello is a traditional winter sports community and offers a host of different activities for winter-oriented people. The Municipality of Pello contains almost 200 km of machine-laid ski trails, some of which are illuminated. The varied terrain with its rolling tree-covered hills and valleys forms an ideal setting for cross-country skiing. Skiers may also want to combine a fishing session to their trek, making the experience truly unique for many.

This is a good option for skiers looking for early snow because the Ritavaara trail network is usually covered by a skiable blanket of snow much sooner than the area’s other trails.
