Rokua National Park


Rokua National Park

Located in the Northern Ostrobothnia regions of Finland, in the areas of Muhos, Vaala and Utajärvi.

  • The park was established in 1956 to protect the valuable habitats and terrain of the Rokuanvaara ridge formation. The area is particularly famous for its natural barren fabrics and glacial-shaped terrain. 
  • The landscape of Rokua is characterized by lichens, pine forests and fens.
  • Park covers an area of ​​8.8 square kilometers.
  • The Rokua area is part of the Rokua Unesco Global Geopark complex together with the Oulujoki Valley and Oulujärvi Niskanselkä areas. The sites in the Geopark network are geologically unique sites where geology has been incorporated into tourism and education.
  • The winding trails in the rolling terrain are ideal for hiking and running. Equally comfortable are the mountain bikes that also have their own marked route.
  • From Pookivaara, located in the heart of the Rokua National Park, a leisurely walker finds a firefighter’s hut as his atmospheric resting place, while a dizzying adventurer climbs to the towering fireman’s tower there.
  • The number of bird species found in the rugged pine woods is about one tenth of the number in more diverse and lush forests.
