Korouoma Nature Reserve


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