The magnificent natural world in Koli and various businesses that operate in the area offer plentiful opportunities for activities and experiences. The panoramic view from Ukko-Koli has everything that is central to the Finnish landscape: forests, lakes, and islands. Artists have long been inspired by Koli, and you will understand why: the most photographed view in Finland has an irresistible appeal!
Koli is a gateway to North Karelia. Its central location makes Koli an ideal starting point for enjoying the surrounding areas and having a fun-packed holiday. Services and activities are about an hour’s drive away, and include the village of Vuonislahti, surging rapids, fishing, and the tranquil border area in Ruunaa. The monastery in Heinävesi is also an excellent sightseeing destination, as is the Finnish Stone Centre. More generally, the Karelian lifestyle and Orthodox culture of the region have captured the interest of many visitors. A golf course is within easy reach, too.
