  • Lots of parking, with clearly marked trails. We had lunch here. It was a buffet with a selection of salads and fish to start, soup, a choice of three main courses, dessert with ice cream and coffee. The bread was exceptional in choice and quality. The price was reasonable. The view from the restaurant was nice. There was a museum that we didn't visit.
  • Well designed and interesting Finnish nature center with exhibits and multimedia presentations to explore and appreciate the Finnish national parks. Entirely wooden structure (no concrete or steel in the frame) is intended to demonstrate how wood can be used as a longterm sustainable construction material. While center is used as an education resource, it could have more info and exhibits about the policies and practices that are needed to make national parks sustainable.
  • Amazing place to see; ticket is 10 euro. Very good for children and adults to see what is Finland during all year around; no need to wait for winter if you visit during summer.
  • Friendly staff. Nice shop with plenty of nature art, books and toys. Transition routes to hiking routes. Also shorter routes that come back to where you left. The view from the Tower could be better if it wasnt pointing towards the antenna and the rest of the building.
  • Very interesting, very much so in combination with a trek in the nature - lots of berries and mushrooms
