Level of difficulty: Easy
The Peak of Napakallio is reached after walking for a
bit over three kilometers from the yard of Koli Freetime. The path is
wide, smooth, covered with grass and most importantly, it’s lit up if
you want to admire the scenery at night. After steep rises you are
rewarded by the beautiful landscape of Koli. While coming back down, you
can relax your senses and hear the sounds of the creeks beside the path
and the beautiful melody of a nightingale, for example. You can also
continue the path towards Koli (the length of the trip is about 8.5km).
From the same place starts a hiking path around the Valkealampi
–pond, which includes both forest and a lake idyll. While traveling
along the forest path, the route changes from wide to quite narrow, and
you can go over the wettest areas by causeways. However, the rising
spring water can cause your socks to get wet, if you are not using any
waterproof shoes. In addition, the combination of a lake, a wetland, and
a forest brings in multiple Finnish plant species in a small area: you
can admire these treasures for example on the bridges along the route.
Path: Both hiking routes start from the yard of Koli Freetime, Kopravaarantie 27.
