Change things up with these side-trips from Kuopio: Linnansaari National Park (in Rantasalmi), Venajanhiekka (in Rautavaara) and Koli National Park (Ukko-Koli Hill, Rasavaara Observation tower, &more). Spend the 23rd (Mon) exploring nature at Pyha-Hakki National Park. There's lots more to do: take in panoramic vistas at Puijo Tower, take in nature's colorful creations at Snellman Park, make a trip to Sculpture Susi Kosiomatkalla, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
