Rokua Geopark is Finland’s first Geopark included in an international network of unique geologic sites. It is an official UNESCO Global Geopark and relates the story of the most recent Ice Age – when the melting ice and receding sea shore shaped the landscapes of Rokua, Lake Oulujärvi and Oulujoki River valley.
The Geopark offers an excellent opportunity for investigating a unique natural setting as well as enjoying genuine products, experiences and stories. The park promotes sustainable development, tourism and natural sciences education.
Ancient geologic changes have moulded the Rokua area into a unique site in terms of landform, flora, fauna and people. We warmly welcome all visitors to Rokua Geopark!
