After studying the expanses of the Internet, have decided to visit this National Park. And never looked back. Perfectly planned routes, varied landscapes, a bunch of mushrooms and berries, hand ferry. In short we are ecstatic. Unfortunately we had to go to the next point of our journey, so the Park we spent just about 3:00. But here I'd like to go back. Very upset that some people litter here, despite the ban. Oh and unfortunately could not walk on the suspension bridge because, judging by the announcement at the entrance, he destroyed. Why then before that I was confident that neat Finns pedantically refer to different content infrastructure and so restore it more quickly, but apparently something went wrong.
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.
