What you'll do

The meeting place for our adventure is at Korouoma Canyon parking lot, 1 hour 30 minutes drive from Rovaniemi. Tour starting time is at 10AM or 11AM based on your schedule. We offer a guided tour at Korouoma Canyon, where we will walk a 5 kilometer long loop trail to see all three frozen water falls. We will see the canyon from high up as well from the bottom of the gorge, following the Korojoki River. We will tell you about the special story of this 600 million years old canyon: its nature and geology and history of the native Sami people and later on Finns herding their sheep on the meadows. If you'd like, we can also take pictures during the trip (and send them to you later) so that you can focus on admiring the views. After viewing the ice falls we will have a break at the outdoors fire place and roast some local Finnish sausages, homemade fish buns or veggies buns, whatever you like. We will make hot coffee, hot chocolate or tea and admire the silence of this winter wonderland. After the lunch we hike up one more kilometer back to the parking lot. We will tell you more ideas of what to in the area - all the best eats, activities and local tips.

Hi everyone! We are Riikka and Dillon. Riikka is born and raised in Posio, Lapland and after 12 years of travelling the world as a freelance journalist she returned to her home village to study to become a wilderness guide. We live a simple, self-sufficient and home made lifestyle in the wilderness of Lapland and want to share the magic with others. We're easy going, always love an adventure and say no to rush and big tour groups. Dillon moved to Lapland from the mountains of California and has quickly adapted to life in the arctic: enjoying ice hole fishing and ice hole swimming to the fullest. On weekends we both do the guiding tours, on weekdays Dillon will be your tour leader.

Where you'll be

We will visit all three frozen waterfalls at Korouoma Canyon. Korouoma is a special place: 600 million years old fracture valley in the bedrock, and at the center of the valley it forms an epic gorge that drops over 100 meters below its surrounding terrain. Thick snow accumulates on the old trees making the canyon completely quiet and special winter wonderland.

Availability

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 7 guests ages 8 and up can attend. Guests should be comfortable to walk on icy paths that can be pretty steep - it's a true adventure, but your spiked shoes will keep you safe. I have done this tour many many times.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask. This trip requires basic physical condition with some steep uphills and downhills but nothing too difficult. Depending on weather conditions and your physical condition we can climb right next to the ice falls. Let's have a great time!
