Koli National park: Island hopping by splashing

Koli National park: Island hopping by splashing

Koli National Park  is also called the national landscape of Finland.Why? Its views have inspired artists over the years and the landscape has been written, painted and composed in numerous pieces of part. The hills are remains of the Karelidian chain of mountains formed almost 2 milliard years ago. The highest point of Koli hill chain as well as whole southern Finland is called "Ukko-Koli", which is located 347 meters above the sea. A chain of narrow islands created by the withdrawing ice-cap at the end of the ice age 11 000 years ago runs through Lake Pielinen from north-west to south-east.

Kolilainen  is a Karelian style holiday house made of logs (204m2), which can host even 17 people. It is located in Loma-Koli area by lake Pielinen (60m from the beach line). There are 3 floors (+basement) with 4 bedrooms. The rest of the sleeping places are on a loft: 2 beds and 5 madrasses. Additionally 2 people are able to sleep on the coach in the living room. The house is ideal for 3-4 families with children or youth or a group. One of the bedrooms is downstairs and suits well also to elderly people. No pets allowed in this house, an alternative accommodation will be offered in case needed.

Alamaja  is a restaurant located in the Koli harbour offering soup lunch every day.
