Karhunkierros Trail

The Taivalköngäs Wilderness Hut is currently not in use due to fire damage to the structures of the hut. The wilderness hut remains closed until further notice. We will inform about the schedule for the renovation of the hut later on our website.

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!
