Kolovesis drawn national park emblem. The oval symbol shows a rock painting of an elk. Text wraps around the outer edge.Kolovesi is a paddler's paradise, where rocky cliffs rise over the narrow lake channels that form part of the vast labyrinthine Saimaa Lake System. Ancient rock paintings give insights into how Finland's early settlers lived in harmony with nature thousands of years ago. With luck you might encounter a curious Saimaa ringed seal. This is one of the best places to spot these unique lake seals.

Suitability: Suitable for summertime hiking only. In winter, entry to islands in Lake Kolovesi is forbidden. In winter, the roads to the area are not maintained. Partly suitable for visitors with mobility difficulties.
