  • Oulanka National Park, there are two hiking Karhunkierros-long (about 80 km) and short-or just Money Karhunkierros. The second begins and ends in Juumie, doing the loop length of about 12 km, in Juumie you can take the map with marked the most important places, but the trail is well marked, even without any maps do not how to get lost (by the way I recommend it to travel in the opposite direction than suggested by the designation of the points on the map, then the longest staircase beats down:)). This trail is basically a Finland in a nutshell-along the way will be the Lake and wytopiskowe, flowing rivers and streams, moraine landscape, but also a lot of rocks. Is designated, very well prepared path and varied-along the way a couple of hanging bridges, a mill, a lot of stairs, once up, once down. You might want to have comfortable shoes. All the time is accompanied by stunning scenery-some of the most beautiful in Finland. This trail should begin to be missed each tour to this country. In Juumie there is a large parking and a nice cafe on the Lake. The whole thing is a paradise for nature lovers and hikers.

  • 82km the bear round is for the most part, the forest trail, and the landscape is relatively low. If you want to see the scenery of the whole walk time, select another route. However, it is an amazing experience, a disservice to the round, and the path and resting places well groomed. Of all the most annoying route changes to the end of the round, in which case a small bear will get trudge through muddy road mileage. I recommend the inclusion of the tent, the autiotupiin printable have to stretch. Even though many people here and the trail to declare that the water can be drunk directly from the stream "because the water looks clean", it should be recalled that the water you should still boil, because bacteria and the beginning of organisms does not see, and water can easily be absorbed by the soil residues in animal faeces and dead:)

  • Start - and endpoint was parking by Juuma. We followed the Pieni Karhunkierros signs and the way was very well marked with posts that are marked in green. With short breaks of a total 30-40 min for the whole lap, we had 4 hours. It is good to deal with the many stairs for the average hiker. I think it's a very nice walk and can only recommend it. En route, it has various toilet cabins and also barbecue areas and seating for breaks.
