Emergency services in Lapland responded to reports of an avalanche in Urho Kekkonen National Park just after midday on Wednesday.
Four people who were initially believed to be missing in the region where the avalanche occurred were quickly located and found to be in good health, the Lapland Police Department reported.
"The missing people were quickly contacted and are fine. The police also received official assistance from a local reindeer herder," the department wrote on Twitter.
Several police, rescue and border guard units responded to the alert.
Pirjo Seurujärvi, a Regional Director with Finland's Metsähallitus wildlife management agency, told Yle that the avalanche occurred in the Siliäselkä area, which is located in the middle of the national park about 25 kilometres from the Kiilopää fell.
The on-duty fire chief with the Lapland Rescue Department, Juha Ronkainen, said that emergency services searched for four people in the area, after one of them reported that an avalanche had occurred. The people had become separated from each other and poor phone reception made communication difficult.
The emergency services were unable to reach the scene, but the four people were able to make contact with each other and eventually with the rescue team.
"They informed the rescue services that no one had been caught in the avalanche," Ronkainen said.
Police urged outdoor enthusiasts to take extra care in the region following the incident, as the Finnish Meteorological Institute has warned there is an increased risk of avalanches occurring at several different locations in the north of Finland due to the current weather conditions.
