The Emblem of Petkeljärvi National Park - Black-throated Diver Pine-clad esker ridges formed during the Ice Age rise over pristine blue lakes in this beautiful part of Finland's eastern borderlands, well worth a day trip or a longer stay. Don't miss the lively and picturesque old Karelian village of Möhkö near the park. The colourful history of the area during World War Two is also of interest.

Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages all year. The Petkeljärvi Outdoor Centre and its immediate surroundings are suitable for visitors with mobility difficulties.
