The drawn emblem of Koli national park. Inside the oval symbol are three brirch trees with fells in the background depicted. Smoke is rising from a slash-and-burn site on the fell slope. The text Koli national park wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.When you take in the marvellous view over Lake Pielinen from the top of Ukko-Koli hill, it's easy to see why this spot has attracted so many Finnish artists, photographers and nature-lovers over the centuries. The splendid scenery always instills a sense of serenity and wonder in visitors. Koli's hills and lakes provide fine settings for enjoyable outings and activities at any time of year.
