Daytrip to Oulanka Canyon

    Tour Operator: MunPolku MyTrail     6 hours     Travel method: Walking     Region: Lapland

The northern part of Oulanka National park is very peaceful even during high season. We follow hiking trail Kanjonin Kurkkaus, which runs along the Finland's most famous hiking trail Karhunkierros (Big Bear's Trail) for awhile. The trail runs in an old and diverse forest landscape, partly following the northern edge of the narrow, stony Oulanka River Canyon, the gem of the Kanjonin kurkkaus Trail. From the Oulanka canyon's steep rocky cliff you can enjoy a magnificent view.

Duration: 6-8 hours includes transfer from Ruka. Lenght: 6-13 km. (6 km Kanjonin Kurkkaus trail + 7 km more to Taivalköngäs). Kanjonin Kurkkaus is a 6 km long circle trail, but we can also make a D-tour to Taivalköngäs. It takes 7 km more walking, but that beautiful rapids with suspension bridges is worth seeing.

Group size: 1- 8. Activity will be normally arranged when minimum 2 adults are attending. But of course MyTrail has options for private/customized departures and solo travelers. Solo price is slightly higher, but if more adventurers book the same departure, solo gets refund and the price drops. So this is very good reason to find new friends and go together.
