Absolutely amazing views! Lot's of different routes to walk so you don't have to be a professional hiker. You can camp and swim there and of course use the grills to make food. Must thing to see in Kouvola! I loved the visit! :D
Varying terrain, lots of ups and downs. Breathtaking views in many spots. There are several trails available with ample options. If you change your mind mid-trail, it's easy to re-plan. Good drinking water is available in a few locations, which is not always the case.
