Näränkä Natural Forests

During a forest fire warning (ilmatieteenlaitos.fi), fire is only allowed at covered campfire sites that have a flue or in fireplaces at huts, but only with extreme caution. The one who lights the fire is always responsible for its safety. Making a fire at campfire sites can be banned locally.

Näränkä in Finland.

Northern Ostrobothnia
Municipality of Kuusamo
Area 137 sq.km. A Natura 2000 site since 1998. Conservation programme for old-growth forests 1996.

The area is managed by Metsähallitus.

The virtually pristine nature of Näränkä Natural Forests is unique on both the scale of Finland and that of Western Europe as a whole.

In addition to the forests, the natural small waterways and bogs have remained in their natural state, allowing many demanding species of organisms to thrive in the area. The Näränkä Natural Forests entail four separate forest areas: Virmajoki, Romevaara, Pajupuro and Näränkä.

On the hiking trails of Näränkä, you can familiarize yourself with the diverse natural conditions of the area, and the restored wilderness farm on Näränkävaara Hill introduces you to the traditional self-sufficient way of life.
