     Tourism, fishing and canoeing guide


The Kiiminkijoki River is a 170-kilometer-long unharnessed, freely flowing river which rises in Puolanka and flows through Utajärvi, New Oulu’s Ylikiiminki, and Kiiminki to Haukipudas. The river belongs to the international Project Aqua conservation program. It also forms the southern boundary of the region of reindeer husbandry.

A well-equipped network of rest stops and special fishing sites has been built along the river as a cooperative effort by several parties. There are approximately 70 rapids for anglers and canoeists along the river. A fishing license allows anglers to fish along the entire river.

The Kiiminkijoki River is a multifaceted, scenic waterway. The most impressive rapids along the river are Kalliuskoski in Puolanka, Kurimonkoski in Utajärvi, and Koitelinkoski in Kiiminki. There are scenic roads in close proximity to the river along its entire length, where a variety of tourism services are available and from which it is easy to access the river.
