53 km: A bigger piece of cake - this route from Oulanka to Ruka will certainly not come to your mind by an accident!

166 km: Demanding challenge that tests both fitness and mental edge. Round trip from Ruka to the Arctic Circle service center in Hautajärvi and back to Ruka.

The 34-166 km routes follow the magnificent Karhunkierros hiking trail in Oulanka National Park. The route is very demanding. It has steep ups and downs, rocks, tree roots and even snow. The finish line for all routes is in the heart of Ruka Village.
