3. Rovaniemi: Korouoma Canyon & Frozen Waterfalls Tour
Discover Korouoma, a 30km-long and 130m-deep canyon located south-east 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 gentle hike through the park, admiring spectacular scenery including cliffs, rapids, and waterfalls. Keep your eyes for the 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 the snowy nature. Next, savor a typical Finnish lunch snack around an open-fire to keep you warm. 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.
