Ruunaa Hiking Area

People in a rubber boat in a white water rapid. A forested rocky shore can be seen in the background.

The drawn emblem of Ruunaa. Inside the oval emblem is a boat going through a rapid depicted. The text Ruunaa hiking area in Finnish and Swedish wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.
The wild white waters of Ruunaa's rivers can be enjoyed from a rocking raft by thrill-seekers, or from a shady riverbank by keen anglers. You can paddle your own canoe here or join a guided rafting or paddling excursion. A great way to round off a day in the wilds is to grill a freshly hooked fish on your campfire.

Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages and conditions all year. Good accessible services.
