Full description

Discover Korouoma, a 30-kilometer-long and 130-meter-deep canyon located southeast of Rovaniemi which offers breathtaking scenery all year round. In Winter, the waterfalls turn into fantastic ice formations that are well-known for ice-climbing.  First, get picked up by your guide from your accommodation in Rovaniemi and set off for the Korouoma Canyon nature reserve. Start the tour with a hike through the park, admiring spectacular scenery including cliffs, rapids, and waterfalls.

Keep your eyes sharp to observe an array of rare species that call the area home. Snowshoes are optional but may be useful if you need more confidence when hiking down the canyon or just want to enjoy some deep snow walks.

Then, have the chance to observe some of the most spectacular frozen waterfalls in Europe and enjoy the beauty of snowy nature. Warm up with a typical Finnish lunch snack around an open fire.

Watch as your guide shows you their fire-making skills. At the end of the 6-hour excursion, return to Rovaniemi where you will be dropped off at your hotel by around 4 PM.

    my tour guide was Michael and man he was awesome. this guide clearly had a passion for his work and a big heart for nature and preserving it. When the email from his company about pick up had not reached me, it was quickly solved and he came to pick me up with boots n overall at my hostel. he was very kind and had a good sense of humor. he knows a lot and shares his knowledge, he also shared our mutual disloath towards another company with a huge bus full of loud, annoying and towards nature disrespectful tourists. we had a tour with a cozy group of 8 people. originally we were with 5 but a colleague of his got stuck in snow so some others joined us when we picked them up from their stranded van. I prefer a company like this with personal contact small tours above big mass tourists ones like Nordic Unique Travels which I had a bad experience in the evening after I got back from this great tour. we had a tasty snack at a cute hut and then hiked back. I love how the hike was not too easy

    Incredible journey! We had so much fun sliding at the bad paths and just walking through the snow and nature. Our guide ( Tibor ) was great and knowledgable and attended to our needs. 'No hands!!' ( he took health and safety very close to heart haha ). Great hike - not difficult at all. Almost flat the whole time ( i would say it was more of a walk ).
