Wolf Cave (Finnish: Susiluola, Swedish: Varggrottan) is a crack in the Pyhävuori mountain (Swedish: Bötombergen) in Kristinestad, near the Karijoki municipality in Finland. The upper part of the crack has been packed with soil, forming a cave. In 1996, some objects were found in the cave that brought about speculations that it could have been inhabited in the Paleolithic, between 120,000 and 130,000 years ago. These objects, if authentic, would be the only known Neanderthal artifacts in the Nordic countries.For Wolf Cave and beyond, use our Karijoki itinerary planner to get the most from your Karijoki vacation.

Wolf Cave reviews
We should have visited the information center before coming here, but it was interesting anyway. As far as I know, the cave hasn't been yet explored thoroughly. It needs some walking to get there. more »
A good place for outdoor activities both in summer and winter. There is a modern restaurant with specular view over the Ostrobothnian landscape who also offer exhibitions of the well known Wolf Cave..... more »
Does not live up to expectations, the entrance is barred and you really cannot see inside it. The lookout tower is nicely built, other than the very steep stairs, but the path there is hard to find. No personnel to be found on site.
Upee paikka. Hienoa että paikka on säästynyt ja selvinnyt että on ollut ihmisten käytössä. Luola on valaistu, katkaisija löytyy kallion seinästä. Suosittelen käymään, reitti hieman vaikeakulkuinen, eli jos liikunnallisia rajoitteita on polku luolalle haastava.
