The most famous hiking trail in Kuusamo and the whole country is the 82-kilometre-long Karhunkierros trail which criss-crosses Oulanka National Park. The hike takes 3 to 7 days, depending on hikers and the distance they wish to cover in a day. Hikers can also opt for shorter distances of the Karhunkierros trail or make varying day trips, too. The trail crosses both State and privately owned land.
