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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Joensuu (Sculpture Susi Kosiomatkalla, Botania - Botanical Garden and Tropical Butterfly Garden, &more) and New Valamo Monastery (in Heinavesi). And it doesn't end there: explore the activities along Pielinen, take in panoramic vistas at Rasavaara Observation tower, stroll through Ukko-Koli, and examine the collection at Koli Nature Centre Ukko.
