Your professional photographer-guide will share photography tips and tricks to capture great pictures of these unique places. We start the tour by travelling one and a half hours to reach Korouoma canyon.
At Korouoma we will hike around three kilometres through the atmospheric Nordic Forest. We reach the viewpoint on top of the canyon to witness the majestic landscapes surrounded by cliffs over 100 metres high. The viewpoint is a fantastic spot for landscape photography and will work as an epic background for anyone wishing to have their portraits taken.
After visiting the viewpoint of Korouoma canyon it is time for next location: old-growth forests and the waterfall of Auttiköngäs. It will take us roughly twenty minutes to reach the location. There, we can hike a bit to reach a view tower at the highest point of the area. From there we get incredible views in all the directions. From the tower you are looking at centuries old, protected forests and impressive sceneries over the wilderness area.
Another gem of the area is a natural waterfall of Auttiköngäs. The Autti river was used to transfer logs in old days, and the structures built on waterfall allowed the wood to slide down to the canyon. Today, this structure is preserved as a historical sighting. While enjoying the waterfall views, your guide will also prepare some light lunch cooked on open fire.
If we get lucky, we might come across animals like the magnificent Scoundrel and Capercaillie which is a huge woodland grouse. Keeping an eye of the sky might offer the ultimate reward in the form of Golden Eagle gliding through the air. The Lynx’s have been observed in the area and the river running at the bottom of the canyon offers a nice habitat for the Otters as well. So, equipping with the longer lenses for this adventure might be a good idea.
