Joensuu is a city and municipality in North Karelia in the province of Eastern Finland. On the 2nd (Fri), look for gifts at Kauppakeskus Iso Myy, hunt for treasures at Joensuun Tori (Joensuu Market), then take in nature's colorful creations at Botania - Botanical Garden and Tropical Butterfly Garden, then don't miss a visit to Sculpture Susi Kosiomatkalla, and finally see the interesting displays at Carelicum.

Plan my day in Joensuu using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

You can drive from Koli to Joensuu in an hour. In November, plan for daily highs up to 1°C, and evening lows to -3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
