The drawn emblem of Southern Konnenvesi national park. An osprey is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Etelä-Konnenvesi kansallispuisto - national park wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.In Southern Konnevesi National Park, visitors can enjoy the wide open waters of the lake in a boat, or canoe through a maze of islands among smooth glaciated rocks and vertical rock walls. In the clear water, you will be able to catch a glimpse of the depths that are the domain of the wild lake brown trout. Breathtaking contrasts characterise this national park. You can trek from herb-rich forests to high cliffs for a view over the magnificent landscape of the osprey.
