Kolovesi National Park in the winter
(updated 17.12.2022, 16.4.2023, 10.5.2023)
Kolovesi National Park is closed for the winter. There is no winter maintenance on the snowy roads or routes in the National Park area. The Nahkiaissalontie leading to the starting point of the Nahkiaissalo Nature Trail is often covered with snow for a long time in the spring, and due to the long uphill, the return trip from the Nahkiaissalo parking area back to the main road can be challenging.
Update: The Nahkiaissalontie road leading to the starting point of the Nahkiaissalo Nature Trail is still covered with snow. However, the road to Kirkkoranta is in ok condition.
