Tiilikkajärvi National Park
The park's lovely lakeshores include the beautiful beach of Venäjänhiekka (Russian Sands), whose name relates to the 1595 Treaty of Teusina which divided these lands between Sweden and Russia. An old border stone in Lake Tiilikkajärvi still bears a crown and a cross symbolising the two countries. A sandy esker ridge formation runs through the lake, adding to the varied natural scene. Slow down, relax, and enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake.
Suitability: For independent hikers who love nature. Even terrain but no accessible services.
The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland.
