We make a car trip to Korouoma Canyon where we move on snowshoes or on foot depending on the snow level and admire the famous canyon landscape. Light lunch is offered by open fire. Great place for making nature pictures year around.
Korouoma Canyon is located on the border of Northern Ostrobothnia and the region of Koillismaa in Southern Lapland. The area’s landscape is exceptionally rugged and grand. The aim of this future nature reserve is to protect species of old-growth forests, of herb-rich forests and of cliffs. The flora and fauna vary throughout the area.
Korouoma is a 30 kilometer long and up to 130 meters deep canyon fracture valley and it is a part of a fracture zone in the bedrock, which is hundreds of millions of years old. At the centre of Korouoma the fracture valley forms a gorge with cliff faces tens of metres high and extremely steep. The River Korojoki meanders and twists at the bottom of the canyon.
Korouoma’s several streams freeze during the winter forming huge ice formations. Because of these ice formations it is known as the best ice climbing location in Finland. Beautiful ice falls stays long into the midsummer.
Korouoma is an outstanding recreational area for outdoor pursuits. The Korouoma area offers a multitude of possibilities for hiking, nature watching and fishing as well as learning about the culture of the area in context to nature.
The canyon and its high cliffs form a breathtakingly rugged landscape to enjoy throughout the year.
