The quartzite of Koli
The forested hills of Koli formed about 2300 million years ago, when sand from the ancient ocean became stuck between the tectonic plates, and a mountain range, almost as high as the Himalayas, formed in the area. As time went by, several  ice ages, along with weathering, left behind only the hardest stone of all – the white quartzite stone of Koli. This very stone has been cut into the KOLI-jewellery.

To the city and the villages


Joensuu is the biggest city in North Karelia (population 73 000). You’ll find a good selection of shops along the pedestrian street or nearby in the town centre. For holiday makers looking for things to do, Joensuu offers a broad range: swimming pools, gymnasia, bowling, massage and other treatments. Then there are the Art Museum and the North Karelia Museum right across from the market square. And just a block away the craft centre Taitokortteli across from the City Hall has become a thriving milieu, with sales outlets, a working smithy and other workshops and services. You can even weave your own souvenir. Distance from Koli: 70 kms.


Lieksa. This town (population 13 000) lies further from the sea than any other in Fennoscandia. To get here from Koli there is a long drive around the lake, but the summer ferry service cuts driving distance. And in the depths of winter (usually January onwards) there is a road (7kms) across the ice. A wide range of shops and services.

Juuka village (population 5 800) is the heart of the district of Juuka (total pop. 6 000). The village is about half an hour’s drive from Koli. Here you’ll find the nearest outlet of Alko, the national alcohol monopoly.

Nurmes The town of Nurmes (population 8500) has two centres: Porokylä and Nurmes. Nurmes offers, among other services, a factory outlet for Sasta outdoor wear.
