Our shuttle will transport us to the right place. Ride takes approximately 1 hour 20 minutes one way. Photo stops can be made along the way to capture the stunning views of this scenic Lappish nature and its surrounding.

We start on a well-maintained national park trail and proceed 4.5 kilometers along the canyon. This part of the trip takes about two – two and a half hours. During the hike, our knowledgeable guides identify many of the native plants and flowers. Quite frequently we see reindeer, moose, red fox along the way.

Upon arrival to the forest camp, snacks will be offered by the open fire.

Korouoma is a 30-km-long fracture valley running from northwest to southeast on the border of the municipalities of Posio and Ranua. It is part of a fracture zone which is hundreds of millions of years old. In the centre of Korouoma the fracture valley forms a canyon that has worn its way into the surrounding terrain. At its deepest the gorge is approximately 100-130 metres deep. Its cliff walls are tens of metres high and extremely steep and at points vertical. The bottom of this canyon is level and it is 200 to 500 metres wide. Parts of the canyon have become boggy and the narrow twisting River Korojoki meanders through it.

Please notice! The tour is not suitable for young children. The route is relatively easy but requires basic physical fitness.
