The Koli area, in North Karelia, is popularly thought to be Finland’s most beautiful nature-tourism attraction. It is a unique ensemble – a combination of internationally well-known natural and cultural values and high-quality, diverse tourist services.
You can admire the Koli national landscape as you like – looking down from the top of high fells or looking up from Lake Pielinen. Koli is the meeting-point of the best features of Finnish Lakeland and the fell landscapes. Lake Pielinen, Finland’s fifth largest lake, the forest landscapes, the islands, and the rugged contours of the Koli fells offer you a glimpse into the Finnish soul. Koli is the Number One destination of the active nature-lover.
Koli is known for its national landscape and the Koli National Park, which fosters the fell landscape, the lake landscapes, the singular geology, and the tradition of slash-and-burn farming and attracts over 130 000 visitors annually. The hiking and skiing trails of the national park invite you to experience the national landscape on foot. Tourism has been carefully reconciled with the conservation tasks of the national park. The tourist information desk at the Visitor Centre Ukko is at the service of tourists and visitors to the Koli National Park.
