Kallo

Printer-friendly version

This scenic village lies between two lakes: lake Kallojärvi and Syväjärvi. In Kallo, they say the village ‘lies right between the eyes’, a saying that ties in nicely with the local origin story of the village's name, which means “skull’ in Finnish. According to the story, the village’s name stems from a fishing expedition out on one of the lakes, when one of the nets came up with a human skull in it. There are many hiking trails around the village of Kallo and a wide range of hunting and berry-picking grounds.

 

Location: Roughly 40 km southwest of the village of Kittilä

Population: About 160

Places of interest: Cross-country skiing tracks, hiking trails, beaches, bird-watching towers, fishing grounds, well-preserved old buildings and an official shooting range.
