Rivers of Finland
Almost all rivers in Finland have the same ending - «yoki». And all because in Finnish it means «river». In total, about six hundred rivers flow through the country..
The river passes through the territory of the northern part of Finland (province of Lappi). The total length of the channel is 180 kilometers. The source of the river is in Lammenjoki Park (southern bogs near the Korsa fell). The main part of Ivalojoki passes through the Hammastunturi area. The place of confluence is the waters of Lake Inari. Here the river forms a vast delta, five kilometers long.
Ivalojoki was a popular destination during the «gold rush». The locals even called her «river of gold». And today many prospectors are scattered on its shores..
The river bed passes through the territory of Finland and partially captures the lands of the Leningrad region - Vyborg and Priozersky - as well as the Lakhdenpohsky district of Karelia. The source of the river is in the swamps of Finland near the Russian-Finnish border. Then the river immediately passes into Russian territory, where it forms a natural border between Karelia and the Leningrad region..
The river passes through several lakes in transit: Pitkäjärvi; Eytyarvi; Field; Novonivskoe; Bogatyrskoe. The confluence of the Ilmenjoki - Lake Vuokasa (Fisherman's Strait).
Geographically, the river is located in Finland and crosses the province of Oulu. Lake Nuasjärvi gives rise to the river. Then she goes to another lake - Oulujärvi. It passes it in transit and eventually flows into the waters of the Gulf of Bothnia..
Throughout its modern period, the Kajaaninjoki River has attracted sports fishing enthusiasts. Today, there are many well-equipped fishing spots in the Oulu area. In addition, the banks of the river are very well groomed, allowing you to fish everywhere..
The river bed passes through the lands of Finland and Karelia (Russia). The source of the river is in the marshes near Salla. Then it takes an eastern direction and passes through the territory of the high-mountainous region. The river passes through several lakes and has a rather winding channel. In Oulanka Park, the river flows through the Felsdurchbrüche canyon. As a result, it flows into the waters of Lake Paanajärvi..
Kokemäenjoki flows through the regions of Pirkanmaa and Satakunta (Finland). The total length of the river is 121 kilometers. The source of the river is Lake Liekovesi (not far from the town of Vammala). Then the river goes to the west, passes the territories of Pirkanmaa and Satakunta and ends the path, flowing into the Gulf of Bothnia (Baltic Sea).
Kokemäenjoki is interesting in that it has the widest estuary among all northern European rivers.
