  • Just wonderful! The 30 minutes boat trip to Julma Olkky was worth it. The high rock walls on both sides of the canyon lake are magnificient.

  • Kayaking in this Canyon in Hossa National Park is very relaxing experience! Snacks on the cliff, dramatic nature around and fresh water under you...Great way to have a day trip in Wild Taiga area!

  • Take a boat ride on the lake and you will be amazed!
  • Julma-Ölkky is a green gem, the grand canyon of Finland. One can walk the path on the edges and admire the wilderness on the other side, and the river looking long lake on the other. Half way is a rope bridge to cross the water. Path on the west side is more demanding (roots, stones, some mud), path on the east side goes higher and has partially been smoothened with sand. One should reserve 3-4 hours for the shortest 5km track. Be ready to take pictures... and notice that phone coverage is poor or non existing 😎
  • peace and silence. my kind of place. there are some weird burnt trees, lightning possibly?
  • Amazing place, with great views
  • Stunning scenery, excellent service regarding canoe-rental and sightseeing boat.
