The Emblem of Isojärvi National Park - American BeaverThe wooded hills and valleys around Lake Isojärvi bear traces left by both two-legged and four-legged loggers. Old cycle paths lead to former lumberjacks' cabins and croft houses. The only loggers working in the park today are beavers. It's hard to spot these shy animals, but you can't miss the impressive results of their labours. 

Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages all year. The terrain is difficult at places. No services for visitors with mobility difficulties.
