Landscape with a rapids waterfall between the rocks. Rocks and trees are covered with frost. There are icicles at the bottom of the cliff next to the water.

The drawn emblem of Oulanka National Park. A calypso orchid is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Oulanka - national park in Swedish and Finnish wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.
In the rugged landscape of the Karhunkierros Trail, you will observe the power of water. The many trail options and hanging bridges of the Oulanka National Park will take you to the most impressive waterfalls in Finland. The jumps of wild brown trout, the dives of European dippers, the unlimited beauty of the aapa mires and the lovely calypso will challenge even the experienced nature photographer.

Nature doesn't recognise any state boundaries: the vast wilderness of the Paanajärvi National Park is to be found on the Russian side of the border.

Suitability: Suitable for everyone, all year round. Also accessible services, visitor centre and a trail.
