With the 17 meter drop, the Pihtsusköngäs waterfall on the Pihtsusjoki River is one of Finland's largest waterfalls.

The falls are on the upper part of lake Vuomakasjärvi and start as a series of small rapids. Mist sprinkles on your face when the Pihtsusköngäs waterfall drop straight down from the rugged cliffs. The waterfalls are along the Nordcalotvägen, Kalottireitti, an 800 kilometre long hiking route that runs through Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian territory.
