To be honest I had never heard of this national park before my masseuse told me about it and my friend and I decided to drive there on the following weekend. We left early with packed lunch, coffee and water. From the parking lot a narrow path to the hill lead on the bank of a small lake, which was covered with water lilies in bloom. So beautiful. It was nice and warm and what was best there were nobody else there. We walked slowly and stopped admiring scenery all the time. Sometimes the most breathtaking views are not very far at all!

Directions: About 200 km northeast from Helsinki, 100 km southeast from Lahti, nearest town Kouvola
