Repovesi National Park
Repovesi's rugged forests are dotted with blue lakes and ponds. The park offers accessible adventures for everyone. Its hills and cliffs challenge keen hikers and climbers. Highlights for families include the Lapinsalmi bridge, the hand-operated Fox's Ferry, cosy Lapp-style huts for rent, and fine views over the treetops from the park's high spots. Repovesi is just a couple of hours from Helsinki, but when you sit round a campfire listening to the eerie calls of red-throated divers echoing over the lake the city feels a million miles away.
Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages all year. Partly suitable for visitors with mobility difficulties.
The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland, Lakeland.
