Must see · National Park · Nature / Park
Repovesi National Park (Finnish: Repoveden kansallispuisto) is situated in the municipalities of Kouvola and Mäntyharju, only a few hours north-east of the more populous Helsinki area of southern Finland. Formerly a site for intensive commercial forestry, the Repovesi area successfully transformed into a pristine national park. Pine and birch trees dominate the park. Repovesi abounds with wildlife including bear, deer and various birds. The River Koukunjoki flows through the park. Other streams and lakes are also situated within the parks boundaries.

Attractions include the Olhavanvuori hill, popular among climbers, and the Kultareitti water taxi route. Also located in the park are the Kuutinlahti bay with its restored timber rafting channels, the Lapinsalmi suspension bridge, and many observation towers.

The common fauna of the park includes the red-throated diver, the Eurasian lynx, the moose, many owls and several galliformes.

  • Absolutely amazing views! Lot's of different routes to walk so you don't have to be a professional hiker. You can camp and swim there and of course use the grills to make food. Must thing to see in Kouvola! I loved the visit! :D
  • Varying terrain, lots of ups and downs. Breathtaking views in many spots. There are several trails available with ample options. If you change your mind mid-trail, it's easy to re-plan. Good drinking water is available in a few locations, which is not always the case.
  • Great place for challenging walks. Many ups and downs make routes interesting though sometimes demanding. You'll see spectacular rocks and clearest lakes. Definitely worthy to visit or stay for longer.
  • Very nice national Park with good service.
  • very pretty. the bridge happened to be broken when I was there, it's been fixed now. paths are marked well. along the path there is places made for camp fire.
