We hiked the karhunkierros in September 2017. At the visitor center we bought sausages, cheese and bread. Thank you for looking after us. We were also able to charge phones and had the option to resupply camping gas.

I visited the Oulanka National Park Visitor Center shortly before starting a kayaking trip from Kiutaköngäs to Jäkälämutka. The visitor center gives plenty of information about the national park. There is also a cafe and a small shop.
