Koli National Park

4
Hiking Trails · Bodies of Water · Landmarks
Although many Koli National Park tours revolve around the majestic natural landscape, there are still plenty of things to see and do for those pursuing culture and heritage. Koli lies on the western shore of Lake Pielinen. Its slopes are home to the country's longest valley dotted with waterfalls and caves. Long regarded as a sacrificial site and sacred abode of powerful spirits, the area was uninhabited until the mid-18th century. Slash-and-burn agricultural heritage and traditional Finnish breeds of cow and sheep are still highly valued in Koli. The area's hills, lakes, and narrow islands invite nature enthusiasts to enjoy outdoor activities year round. To arrange what you want to do in Koli National Park, use our Finland tour itinerary planner.
