National Park Tour Lakes: Koli 2 days

National Park Tour Lakes: Koli 2 days

National Park Tour is a self-drive holiday in Finland. Skafur-Tour has made holiday planning easy for you, you simply choose out of ready-made 1, 2 or 3 day active holiday packages and move the chosen "building blocks" to your travel cart. You can choose out of three routes Lakes, Lapland and later also Archipelago. We can also book for you a Sixt rental car (up to 9 people). Are you traveling with a dog? Ask for pet friendly cars.

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.  

Day tour to the Koli nature  starts from the nature heritage center Ukko. The first hiking leg is 6 kilometres passing the first of the three peaks, Akka-Koli ending in the to the northern end of lake Herajärvi, where you will get into canoes and paddle 6 kilometres across the lake to the heritage farmhouse Lakkala established in 1830's. In Lakkala you will enjoy your takeaway lunch by an open fire. You will then hike along the Herajärvi Circuit Trail from hill to hill. In the end of the 13 kilometres hiking leg you will pass the Mäkrä meadows full of wild flowers and conquer the other two peaks, Paha and Ukko Koli. The tour is physically demanding and requires good physical condition and swimming skills but not previous experience on canoeing.The tour ends up in your hotel, wher you can relax your muscles in the hotel spa.

Break Sokos Hotel Koli   is very unique due to its location on the top of "Ukko-Koli".Cars are left on a parking lodge and people take an elevator up to the hotel. The hotel has been totally renovated during the recent years and is now very modern but sits still nicely in its environment. Next to the hotel there is a heritage center worth visiting.  

Koli Relax Spa  is a new type of spa, in which you are treating yourself in different pools, showers and saunas. You will get with you a bucket full of personal care products. You may take with you drinks from the café bar and also order them to the pool area. Main idea is to offer visitors peaceful own time. Children under 18yrs are allowed to visit the spa only with theri parent/s and can only use the spa until 4pm after which only adults use the spa until 8pm.   

Alamaja  is a harbour restaurant located  On your first evening you will have sauna by a lake in Alamaja. After sauna there will be light lunch-type dinner for you. Drinks you can buy from the cafeteria.
