The Sukularakka giant’s kettles are located about 30 km south of Santa Claus Village. There are 14 giant’s kettles on the slopes of Sukulanrakka, three of which are incredibly deep and are among the largest in all of Finland. The biggest kettle is located at the foot of Sukulanrakka. It is partially broken, 8m wide and 15m deep. The other two are atop Sukulanrakka, with depths of 9m and 10m. In winter, when the ground is frozen, the site is very difficult to access and visiting the kettles is not recommended.
Giant’s kettles were created approx. 10,000 years ago at edge zones of melting continental ice, as a result of strong meltwater streams. In the meltwater tunnels at the bottoms of glaciers, strongly flowing water carried boulders and stones along, creating the kettles.
