  • If you are planning to visit Finland and Finnish love nature-visit this park necessarily.
    View original
  • Planning a trip to Finland, was expressly decided that it was necessary to give at least a few hours well spent enjoying the beauty of the Finnish nature. 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.

  • Visiting the Park has left a lasting impression. Perfectly organized space, where you can feel the love Finns. Hiking trails, suspension bridge, ferry, fishing on Lake Tervajarvi.

  • 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.
