Services Offered by Enterprises and Organisations in Oulanka National Park

6.5.2021
At the Karhunkierros trail there is still a lot of snow. When snow melts, the rivers and streams of Oulanka National Park flood. Floodwater covers the trail in several locations. The flood season lasts for about two weeks. We recommend of hiking the Karhunkierros trail at the earliest in the end of May.

Following enterprises and other organisations offer services in the national park. They have a cooperation agreement with Metsähallitus and they follow the principles of sustainable nature tourism (metsa.fi) when operating in the national park.
