The Oulanka Wilderness Trail is closed. The trail is not maintained anymore this year. Due the melting snow there can be water on the trail. If you are heading to the day trails of Oulanka, it is good to wear shoes with a good grip because the trails (especially stairs) are still slippery.
Finland's most popular hiking trail, the legendary Karhunkierros Trail (also know as The Bear's Trail or The Bear's Ring), takes you to Oulanka's best locations by the roaring waters. The Karhunkierros Trail offers hikers many sights and many sweat-breaking kilometres. Thanks to route alternatives, the trail is also suitable for day trips. Part of the trail is also suitable for canoeing. This trail must be done at least once in lifetime!
