What can one do in Teuravuoma - Kivijärvenvuoma?

Walk on Marked Trails

You can reach the area by the historical Telatie trail, consisting mainly of duckboards, which runs between the villages of Kurtakko, Teurajärvi and Venejärvi. The trail covers a distance of slightly more than 17 km and it is possible to hike shorter sections of the route. The trails are easy to hike and don't demand a high level of physical fitness.

Go Bird Watching

Teuravuoma - Kivijärvenvuoma is a birdwatcher's paradise. There are two bird-watching towers along the Telatie trail that open up onto expansive views of one of Central Lapland's best bird areas. The best times for birdwatching are in the spring and early summer, when bird populations are the most abundant and visible. 

See the Sights and Scenery

Along the Telatie trail, you'll find observation towers where you can admire the mire landscape, as well as historical points of interest, such as the Kurtakko summer cowshed.

Ski Cross-country off Trails

There are no maintained ski trails in Teuravuoma - Kivijärvenvuoma, but the huge expanses of mires, with their breathtaking scenery, offer wonderful opportunities in favourable conditions for skiers with proper off-track equipment.

Go Berry and Mushroom Picking

Arctic cloudberry (Rubus chamaemorus) is abundant in the area's mires, and later, in the fall, cranberries (Vaccinium oxycoccos) are ripe for the picking.

Go Snowshoe Walking
