Helvetinjärvi National Park

The shore of the lake. Further away open water.

The drawn emblem of Helvetinjärvi national park. Helvetinkolu, a lake and a sunset is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Helvetinjärvi kansallispuisto - national park wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.
The landscape here is dominated by geological features created millions of years ago by mighty movements deep in the Earth's crust. After admiring the rugged cliffs around Helvetinjärvi (Hell's Lake) and Helvetinkolu (Hell's Hole) you can relax on the sandy lakeshore at Haukanhieta.

Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages all year. Some sections of the trails are challenging due to differences in elevation. Kankimäki and the immediate surroundings of Haukanhieta are accessible if assisted.


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