    The River Oulankajoki is what probably gives the name to this park, it is going through the park with few nice wild rapids in the upper part and more slow and calm in the lower part.

  • The rive/lake

    There is beautiful lake in the park where you can swim if you don't mind the cold water. There are not many spots where it is easy to get to the water so if you get to some good spot use it as you don't know how it will be in the next stop.

    The road to Oulanka

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I got to Oulanka National Park by my own car. The road is not paved but you do not need 4WD on such road, any normal car can make it if you don't over speed. Be aware that in the winter it might be another story.

    I don't think there are major warning or dangers things here. Basic outdoor safety rules apply here as well, watch out your step and beware of low wet places and the water all around. Oh yeah, you might also get lucky and spot a bear, but those are very rare.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I would say that these are not must but surely more comfortable to have hiking shoes and outdoor cloths. In warm summer day you can surely hang around also with sandals but it also might be raining and cool, so be prepare for that as well.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito Repellent can be helpful, depends on the season you visit, during the mid summer period it will be very useful to have such.
