Juuma

The Juuma tourist area is on the edge of the wilderness, along the clear water River Kitkajoki, next to Oulanka National Park.

Juuma is an idyllic country village surrounded by rugged and varying sceneries.

The traditions of the Juuma tourist village date back to the early 20th century, when a rapid shooting route ran from Käylä via Juuma to Lake Paanajärvi, across the border in Russia.

The famous Kuusamo rapids JYRÄVÄ, AALLOKKOKOSKI, MYLLYKOSKI and NISKAKOSKI were still roaming free near the Juuma village, along the PIENI KARHUNKIERROS trail. This renowned trail includes many hanging bridges. Several extremely rare plants such as the fairy slipper orchid and the white dryad grow on the slopes of gorges.
