The outdoor map Ruka Oulanka Karhunkierros 1:50 000 / 1:25 000 is printed on synthetic material. The new durable Finnish outdoor maps can be identified by the yellow marking on the cover.
The double-sided map covers the most beautiful trekking areas of Kuusamo. Included are the popular Karhunkierros (Bear’s Trail) Hiking Trail, Oulanka National Park, the hiking trails and cross-country ski trails in the vicinity of Ruka Resort and the inviting fishing spots of the River Kuusinkijoki. The region is popular among cross-country skiers, hikers, fishers and snowmobilers.
The material of the map is fully waterproof and can withstand almost limitless folding, and it will not rip in normal map use. The features are also retained during frost and heat. The print is crisp and the colours are bright. The map has a pleasant feel and is lighter than if printed on paper.
In addition to terrain details, e.g. huts, routes and other hiking services, as well as dining and accommodation services, have been marked on the map. The map includes ten attractions or experiences in the area, which have been described in a few sentences at the edge of the map in Finnish and English. At the edge of the map, you can also find all the hut coordinates in the area as well as information about the magnetic declination. The scale of the map is best suited for Finnish terrain 1:50 000 (1 cm on the map = 500 m of terrain). The most popular day hike trails are described also in a more detailed scale of 1:25 000.
