Last Saturday (18.02.2023), I organized a nature trip to Korouoma Canyon for exchange students who are currently studying at Lapland University of Applied Sciences.
7 persons joined with me for this winter adventure. We saw three frozen waterfalls and walked a 5 km nature path through the snowy and icy canyon, with plenty of uphill and downhill trekking to keep us on our toes.
During the trip, we had a lunch break where I built a fire, and we enjoyed sausages, sandwiches, and juice. It was a great opportunity to sit down and enjoy the beauty of nature while getting to know each other better. The trip was a great way for everyone to bond and get to know each other more.
In addition to the group´s laughter and conversation, we saw a lot of tourists and some ice climbers who were climbing up to frozen waterfalls. It was amazing to watch them in action and see the beauty of the canyon from different perspectives.
On our way back to the city of Rovaniemi, we stopped at Auttiköngäs for a quick visit and to take some pictures. The whole trip was a wonderful experience and a great opportunity for everyone to experience the beauty of Lapland's nature.
If you are in Lapland or visiting here, I highly recommend a visit to Korouoma Canyon and Auttiköngäs. They are must-see places that will leave you in awe of the beauty of nature.
