Let the landscapes take your breath away

On this half-day hike, you explore Mäkrä, a hill in the heart of Koli National Park. The trails take you into deep forests, open meadows and spectacular scenic points on top of some of the oldest rocks in Europe. If the climb up Mäkrä hill does not take your breath away, the view opening from the top over Lake Pielinen most certainly will! During the hike you enjoy a typical Finnish camp meal around a crackling camp fire. On this unhurried hike you experience Koli with all your senses!
