Repovesi National Park (15km2) together with the private Aarnikotka Strict Nature Reserve (14km2) owned by UPM is located in the area of Kouvola and Mantyharju. You can find there large forest areas as well as high cliffs and tens of smaller and bigger lakes with translucent water. The fauna is versatile. There are red-throated divers, flying squirrels, owls, lynxes, pine martens, elks, otters and beavers living in the area. The differences in altitudes are relatively high, which makes hiking physically challenging.

WHD Gård  is a ranch located by Nurmaajärvi lake in Mäntyharju, very close to the Repovesi national park. There is a brand new GuestHouse with 10 superior rooms and a nice restaurant for having breakfast and dinner. There is also an automobile museum with the largest collection of old cars in Finland.

Pihkapirtti  is lodge cottage located by a lake called Mustalampi in themiddle of the Repovesi National Park, on the opposite side of the hill Mustavuori. The are no other cottages by the lake. This is your hiking base camp, where a cook will be waiting for you with ready-made dinner. Please note that the cottage has no electricity, the toilet is outdoors.
