The drawn emblem of Isojärvi national park. Helvetinkolu, a beaver is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Isojärvi kansallispuisto - national park wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.
The 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 accessible services.

The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland, Lakeland.
