The Aptas trail is an out and back that ends at the top of Ylinen Aptasvaara. The trail features great views and starts above treeline with a descent off the top. It then contours through the forest and ends with a final descent back to the trail head.
Access is only up and down the trail and as such all users should be aware of both climbing and descending users. Always control your speed and be polite to everyone you meet, on wheels or feet.

It's critical that users respect the environment while using this trail and always remain on trail. It can be a good idea to avoid this trail in times of prolonged wet weather,

Access Info

Follow the gravel road that starts at the Swedish Institute of Space Physics and drive/ride to the end of it. There you will find the trail head. Out of the two trails starting at the end of the gravel road, make sure to be on the one on your left hand side.
