Karhunkierros Trail starts from Retkietappi. It is a 12 kilometres
long, fairly demanding day-route. It begins as a two-way trail which
later forms a loop.

with green tree signs. Along the trail there is a wilderness hut,
an old mill, a lean-to, and some camp and campfire sites.
The best sights
the Pieni Karhunkierros Trail has to offer are the ruggedly beautiful
sceneries of rapids Jyrävä, Aallokkokoski, Myllykoski, Niskakoski
The trail also
offers many experiences for nature experts.
If your timetable
is tight, or you feel that the Pieni Karhunkierros Trail is too long
or demanding for you, you can choose to hike the 7 km distance from
Retkietappi to Jyrävä and Myllykoski rapids and back.

café of Retkietappi. A cup of coffee and a snack will taste
heavenly after a day spent outdoors.
The easiest way to reach the nature trails and fishing sites is to
rent a cabin at Retkietappi and start your hikes from there.
