  • This time we went on a walk around the island in the Lake Park area. The route trails were right from the start there are vaikeampikulkuisen than by end. Nice to see that the different edges of the National Park, is a walking experience so different. Olhavanvuori was again well worth a visit. The coffee katselln a moment the landscape was magnificent.

  • Beautiful park with an adventurous walk around the lake on to the rocks. The walk includes a manual operated ferry over the lake, a hanging bridge and a great viewing point across the park. There are several distances to walk which makes it fun for everyone.
  • Great trail. Started from the parking lot at Lupinsalmi. Included the bridge an a great view from the top.
  • Amazing natural environment! Many different paths and levels of difficulty proposed. Going there with young children is possible and even recommended! Inside the park you'll find huts, grilling places, wood and axes at your disposal. Huge parking lot, but still quite full during the high season. Parking lot easily reached by vehicle. You can have a drink or an ice cream as a seasonal cafeteria is set on the parking lot. Dry toilets near the park main entry. No entry fees.
  • Fairytale forests with little lakes and ponds dotted amongst the rocky and ancient, treeroot-riddled hills. Trekking these forests requires some stamina, even if the distances aren't that long, due to the steep rises and the uneven grounds. Well worth a visit!
  • Nice place to go for long walks and camping. The routes, camp-fire sites and facilities are well maintained. Forests are unfortunately mainly secondary growth forests. However, the park has great views and scenic spots.
