Kevo Strict Nature Reserve ("Kevon luonnonpuisto") is a strict nature reserve located in northern Lapland Province, Finland. It was established in 1956 and covers convert|712|km2|mi2.

The reserve is a popular backpacking destination due to its canyon-like gorge valley. A central part of the reserve is the convert|40|km|mi long and, at places, convert|80|m|ft deep Kevojoki canyon, on the bottom of which flows the Kevojoki river. It is surrounded by more level fell upland.

Walking in the reserve is only permitted along two marked routes. The Kevo backpacking route is convert|64|km|mi long and follows the gorge valley. The Kuivi route is convert|78|km|mi and goes along the fell area. Both routes are difficult and include e.g. many paddle crossings.
