Ruunaa Hiking Area

Neitikoski in the spring. The stream is free of ice. There are fresh leaf buds on the right.

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.
