Korouoma is about 30 kilometers long northwest-southeast valley. It is part of a hundreds of millions of years old bedrock fracture zone. You can hike, ski or snowshoe across the entire canyon or stay on the 5 km long Koronjää Trail, along which the canyon’s three largest ice falls rise. New Piippukallion pihaus Trail takes you to slopes to enjoy sceneries.
