Korkeavaara 22_5 019.JPG

Level of difficulty: Average

Korkeavaara is a forested hill which has deserved the title of “The little sister of Koli”. The 3,5km long hiking route goes through the hill, and even the former president of Finland, Urho Kalevi Kekkonen, has hiked the route. The hill is 167 meters high, and there’s some steep rises and falls - the hiker can also come across large and rich blueberry and cowberry forests. Mushrooms are also a common sight in a boreal forest next to a shore of Pielinen. The breath taking scenery of Korkeavaara can be admired from the top of the hill, at the place with a campfire spot, a cooking shelter and an outhouse close to it. The surrounding landscape reaches even the archipelago of Paalasmaa. Also, there’s a geocache near to the campfire spot.

Path: Turn to Joensuu, drive forward 1,1km and turn left to Nunnanlahdentie. Drive forward 7,9km and turn left to Kokkolahdentie. Drive 170 meters and leave your car to the parking lot on the left. The route of Korkeavaara ends to Nunnanlahdentie.
