  • We went for a dayhike. Visited in the Lintuniemi and Joutsniemi places. Joutsniemi will have a lavvu and woodshed soon. Seems that mainenance works well, there was new wood waiting. Great views and.....  more »
  • Beautiful swamp nature. Peaceful walking routes, not so many people visiting here. Easy to reach by car.  more »
  • Great easy hike. I took the red square more advanced route, but that simply meant that it was just a bit longer (I think around 3 miles) and it had a bit steeper ups and downs (not that much really). I like how in Finland they have those stops where you will find a spot to build a fire, wood, etc. For this reason, it is great to bring some Finnish sausages, mustard, coffee, juice, fire starters, napkins, lighter or matches, with you so you can half a lunch halfway through the hike. It was a lot of fun and we weren't the only ones doing this.
  • Very nice nature, but paths were too easy for my taste. Still... Being in the national park is the most incredible way to spend a day.
