Saivonkierros is a short trail near Äkäslompolo and Pallas-Ylläs national park leading to ancient sacred place of Sami people of Lapland. In old times not everyone dreaded to enter the area and it was forbidden of women and animals to approach the place. There are info boards along the route explaining old traditions and beliefs.
In early October on a bit wet day it was very peaceful on the trail, no other visitors during the visit. The trail starts by the local road, crosses Äkäsjoki river once, comes to Saivo lake and then returns on the other side of the river to the road. The circle route is only 3 km long but is close to other paths if one wants a longer walk.
