Less for hikers but excellent for canoes
Aug 2017 • Couples
Nice park, within a big lake. The hiking options are very limited so this park is more for canoes. You can rent them on site at Kirkkoranta, contact SaimaaHoliday Oravi and Kolovesi tel. +358 44 274 7078. the park was made to protect the rare sweetwater seals but the chance to see them is very low as they are very shy. The best camp site in our opinion is on the south end at Käkövesi.

Canoe in Kolovesi National Park
May 2017 • Friends
It was a very nice experience that i had with my friends. The nature was beautiful and the food was very good. It was my first time canoeing and it was very relaxing and nice. I did not fall in the water as i expected! I will definitely come again to discover the whole Kolovesi national park because is beautiful!

Space and Silence With Great Views
Aug 2016 • Friends
Kolovesi is difficult to get to without a car but when you get there you will be rewarded. It will be about 4h by car from Helsinki. With public transport you can get to Enonkoski but from there you wil have to take a taxi.

It's excellent if you are looking to do kayaking or canoeing and like being outdoors. Most of the part is quite sheltered so we did not encountered much in the way of the wind also motorboats are not allowed to majority of the park which helps with the silence but also makes kayaking very enjoyable as there are no wakes to worry about.

The camp sites are well marked and well prepared without taking out the wild. they have fireplace and toilet as well as few decks for tents but those can be taken quickly. The park offers great views and at least two of the campistes have absolutely delightful spots for tents with fantastic views up on a hill overlooking the lake.

If it sounds you might like it... you will love it.

Great Outdoor Recreation!
Jul 2014 • Friends
We have been to Kolovesi two times in June 2013 and July 2014. The weather was wonderful. We took canoes and paddled a lot. The water was very clean and we drank it right from the center of a lake. The whole park is equipped with fire places, spots for a tent and toilets. I highly recommend this park for families or group of friends :)
