Valleys carved deep, gorges with steep rock walls, canyons, fast-flowing rivers and waterfalls, fells and primeval forests create the perfect setting for day trips as well as longer hikes.
Kuusamo is a hiker’s dream destination!
Located in Kuusamo, the Karhunkierros Trail is the most famous hiking trail in Finland, but we also have plenty of other hiking trails and walkable attractions, one more stunning than the other.
This iconic 80 km trail winds around the unforgettable scenery of Oulanka National Park and the fell landscape near Ruka.
It’s hard to find hiking trails that compare with Oulanka, Riisitunturi and Hossa in Finland. Extensive services are available and the scenery is simply breathtaking!
Self-organised or guided hikes all year round
There are countless ways to encounter the majestic nature of Kuusamo: guided nature trips, self-organised day hikes or hiking excursions that last several days. Our hiking trails come with different difficulty levels: we have options suitable for everyone, from families to experienced hikers.
