Peaceful esker ridges and lakes in the Karelian borderlands
Pine-clad esker ridges formed during the Ice Age rise over pristine blue lakes in this beautiful part of Finland’s eastern borderlands, well worth a day trip or a longer stay. Don’t miss the lively and picturesque old Karelian village of Möhkö near the park. The colourful history of the area during World War Two is also of interest.
In nature conservation areas, everyman’s rights do not apply in the normal way. Please always check the rules of the destination before making your trip. National parks are nature reserves, whose key task is to safeguard biodiversity and enable people to enjoy and relax in nature on the terms of nature conservation.
All national parks in Finland are managed by Metsähallitus.
