Guided 5 Day Hiking Trip to Koli National Park from Helsinki

Not currently available


This hike takes us to Finland’s most famous national landscape, on Herajärvi Trail to Koli National Park and to the peak of Koli.

Simply: you have to see this.

Views from high rocks, trails in Karelia’s forests, traditional farmhouses, meadows left behind from old homes and sleeping on a lakeshore. This hike is a journey into a Finnish painting and it’s traditional scenery.

This all inclusive hike has everything you need. Step in to my minibus, I’ll take care of everything else.

The whole trip is five days long from Helsinki. We’ll sleep in tents for four nights, and the hike takes three days.

We hike responsibly and respect the nature. We leave only footprints behind.
