Full description

Experience an unforgettable day tour to the incredible frozen waterfalls of Korouma. After being picked up at your accommodation and changing into appropriate clothes, allow your guide to drive you to the Posio area about 100 km away from Rovaniemi.

The snowy scenery of Korouma Canyon provides the opportunity for winter hiking surrounded by beautiful and unforgettable views. Korouoma Canyon is one of the largest natural attractions that Lapland has to offer. It is a bedrock fracture zone which is millions of years old.

The frozen icefalls are unique in Finland, and they are excellent for walking and appreciating the beautiful nature that surrounds it. The Ice Trail in Korouoma Canyon is the ideal place to try this fun way to experience deep snow and unforgettable forest landscapes. At the bottom of the canyon is the Korojoki river, which ends in Kemijoki River.

There are many varied animal species in Korouoma Canyon including deer, wild hare, foxes, and golden eagles. Hiking is the perfect activity for the whole family, and anyone can do it, no previous experience is required. With winter overalls and proper boots anyone can walk in deep snow without any type of chill.

The Koruoma Waterfalls are magic and remain frozen until late spring. Precipitation and sub-zero temperatures determine the number and shape of frozen waterfalls.

Visitors are stunned by the amazing frozen waterfalls and sometimes the enthusiastic ice climbers can be seen climbing up the frozen waterfalls to the top, despite the intensely cold weather. You will admire the icefalls along the Koronjää trail, which leads you past three of the biggest and most beautiful frozen waterfalls in Korouoma.

The Korouoma area in Posio is excellent for a walking day tour and hike. There are many lean-to shelters with campfire spots in the area. A campfire BBQ will be served to keep you warm and energetic during the day.

    What a great snow tour. We had a small group (7 people). This gave us a lot of explanation and we could ask a lot of things from the guide. The frozen waterfalls are great to see. And the trek itself about 5 km is even more beautiful. We had a lot of snow and that made the trip even more magical. We made an extra stop on the way back to see another special place with a view. All in all, highly recommended!

    Was super cool! There were 8 of us on this tour. Everyone was in a great mood and it was great fun! Our guide Mirko was super nice. We got suitable shoes for those who didn't have snowshoes. Driving to Korouma Gorge from Buro takes 1h30 hours. We were able to connect music in the van ourselves. Then we went hiking! Since we were there in March, the paths were a bit frozen and slippery. So we used a slightly different route, but we still saw the 3 frozen waterfalls. We (the ones who wanted to) just slipped down the steep path with our ski pants. Super funny. To catch our breath we took a break at a campfire with hot juice and sausages. A successful hike!

    A really great experience! It was like being in a winter wonderland... the guides were super friendly (especially Kristina who really loves nature and you can tell she really wants to share the beauty of Finland and nature in general with others!), great info and stories and you felt well protected from start to finish and could fully engage with the wonderful nature and enjoy it! I would book again anytime :-)
