Korouoma Canyon is a natural wonder formed thousands of years ago. It lies a 90-minute drive away from Rovaniemi. In the bottom of the canyon flows Korojoki River, which is surrounded on both sides by cliffs over 100 meters high. Several streams cascade down these cliffs freezing into magnificent ice falls in the winter time.
Our Korouoma expedition takes you to this outstanding photography location led by a professional photographer. Under his guidance, you will get to the best spots and be able to bring alive the ancient story of the area in your photos.
During the expedition we will hike through glorious Arctic nature and Nordic forests. We pass through three massive frozen waterfalls, which are sure to impress and create extraordinary landscape for photography. Frozen rivers and rugged gorges pierce the snowy scenery as we hike on the trail through wilderness. We rest on top of the canyon where we are afforded a splendid view over the whole canyon looking down on frozen waterfalls standing out from authentic and pure Arctic wilderness.
During the expeditions we will stop at a lean-to and build a fire, over which your expedition guide will prepare a light lunch for the group. This adventure is your top choice to experience versatile Arctic nature including forests, ice falls, rivers, cliffs and wilderness. Always heading out in a small group, ensures that we can offer you the most exclusive way to experience this world-class location. We take pride in making sure you capture the best photos from your holiday with help of our professional photographer guide.
