The road to the Oulanka Visitor Centre is in a bad condition

(Updated 12.4.18)
The Liikasenvaarantie road leading to the Oulanka Visitor Centre is in a bad condition due to thawing and the snow melting. The road is muddy and slippery and we recommend driving slowly.

Warning! Do not walk on any ice!

(Updated 31.3.18)
Spring is advancing quickly and the ice on top of rivers and lakes in the national park will no longer be able to withstand the weight of a human. It has come to our knowledge that there have been a few small accidents on the ice, but so far serious injuries have been avoided. We ask visitors to stay on the marked trails, and advise to refrain from walking on the snowmobile tracks on top of the ice.
