We start on a well-maintained national park trail and proceed 4.5 kilometers along the canyon. This portion of the trip takes about two - two and a half hours. During the hike, our knowledgeable guides identify many of the native plants and flowers. Quite frequently we see reindeer, moose, red fox along the way.

Korouoma is a 30-km-long fracture valley running from northwest to southeast on the border of the municipalities of Posio and Ranua. It is part of a fracture zone which is hundreds of millions of years old. In the centre of Korouoma the fracture valley forms a canyon that has worn its way into the surrounding terrain. At its deepest the gorge is approximately 100-130 metres deep. Its cliff walls are tens of metres high and extremely steep and at points vertical. The bottom of this canyon is level and it is 200 to 500 metres wide. Parts of the canyon have become boggy and the narrow twisting River Korojoki meanders through it.
