Today we are publishing two new and up to date Wilderness Briefs about Wilderness in the Finland – Oulanka Wilderness and Oulanka WildRiver. These lie on the border with Russia and the National park Paanajarvi, and thus form a transboundary Wilderness with Paanajarvi Wilderness and Olanga WildRiver.
Oulanka Wilderness and Oulanka WildRiver are embedded in the Oulanka National Park, Finland. The Oulanka Wilderness and Oulanka WildRiver are close to the Arctic Circle at the border with Russia. The park is traversed by two large rivers flowing east, the Oulanka WILDRiver and Kitka WILDRiver with several tributaries, such as the rivers Maaninkajoki and Savinajoki. These areas thus contribute to the protection of Wilderness and rivers in Europe.
More details about this unique Wilderness can be read in the following Briefs
