Area 51 km², established in 1990
The area is managed by Metsähallitus
The Lentua Nature Reserve introduces the visitor to the largest unregulated lake in Kuhmo as well as rugged, wilderness-like nature. Lentua is familiar to Finns through the Finnish painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela's illustrations based on Finland's national epic, the Kalevala, and the writings of Veikko Huovinen, a popular Finnish author.
The area is an excellent destination for water enthusiasts, since more than 70 per cent of it is made up of water.
