Korouoma Ice Waterfalls

Korouoma is a 30 km long geological fracture valley in Posio. It is part of a fracture zone in the bedrock which is hundreds of millions of years old. At the center, the fracture valley forms a gorge with high cliff faces. Small streams cascade down the cliff faces in the summer and freeze into beautiful frozen waterfalls during winter, making Korouoma the number one ice climbing destination in Finland. We take a bus to Korouoma Canyon, where we move on snowshoes or on foot depending on the snow level, and admire the famous canyon landscape. A light lunch is served at a camp fire.
