Photographer's Note

Description
We got to the top of the fell on snow scooters just after sunset. The trees on the top were completely covered by snow and ice whereas the lower parts were already loosing their winter cover. Temperature was dropping fast and by the time we were riding over the lake in the center of the image (you can see the path) temperature went down to -25 or so... a cold drive back to bed.

Iivaara (470 m) is the highest fell of Southern Kuusamo. This felltop was agreed to mark the border between the two countries in the peace treaty (Tδyssinδ) in 1595 after a war between Russia and Sweden. The summit is treeless, and the very special kind of mineral called "ijolite" shows on the surface. The fell is the only place in Finland where this mineral is found. The Ahmanpolku trail goes via the top of Iivaara to Penikkavaara, Laihavaara and further to Hoikanlampi pond. The length of the trail is 16 km.
