This is for the adventurous! Starting from the farming village of Juuma, the beginning is demanding with the falls of Myllykoski (III) and rapids of Aallokkokoski (IV) to conquer. We can view Jyrävä waterfall from the land. Then we continue down through the rugged beauty of the Kitka canyon through the Oulanka National Park, which is famous for its wildlife, fauna and climate, finally ending just before the Russian border. We stop during the journey for a well deserved break, making a campfire by the riverside, where your skipper/wilderness guide can tell you the wonders of the nature.
