About this experience

After meeting up with our guide we drive to Juuma village. This snowshoe hike takes us to the most beautiful part of Kuusamo and Oulanka national park, The little bears trail. We will hike next to the river Kitka with snowshoes and see the famous Myllykoski old mill next to the roaring waters. Next to the water we may see white throated dippers or otters having fun in the flowing water and snow. The white throated dipper is a famous among the locals, this bird stays in Oulanka over the winter and eats food from under the water. If you are lucky you can see it jumping into the stream and back up. This winter scenery will surely take your breath away. Hiking distance is about 4-5 kms and during the program we will have a coffee break with sandwiches.
