  • Beautiful intact nature. The trail from Haukanhieta is easy and consists of a 5,5km path to the "hole of hell" there the view is really nice. Nothing spectacular though and you will take the same...  more »

  • Staff in restaurant on gate is very friendly. Landscape on trail mind blowing. Short route to Helvetinkolu is easy to walk.
  • One of the remote places that gives you the feeling of wilderness in southern finland! Many lakes and camp sites to spend your evening, or few in a row. Combined to seitseminen its a large area with a lot to see
  • Very varied terrain and scenery, lots of wildlife and enough area to spend several nights. Some areas are very challenging to hike due to steep hills.
  • Awesome trails, need to be quite fit to make all steep hills. Some have even stairs built. We walked from caravan area near Haukan Hieta to Helvetinkolu and back, which is about 6km one way. Exhausted in the end, but definitely worth the effort.
  • So nice place I love here. yes for sure next time I come back again. 😊😊😊
