EXPLORING THE PEARL OF FINLAND // Trip to Finland, part 1
A trip to Finland took me and my family thru Kotka and Savonlinna towns to Koli National Park and we found a true paradise there. Besides magnificent hilltop views we paddled to a remote tiny island and stayed there for a night. I also fulfilled one of my long-time dreams there!

Finland KOLI National Park - Kolinuuron kierros
KOLI National Park image album
Kolinuuron kierros (3,5km) esittelee Kolin ainutlaatuista geologiaa.
Koli on Pohjois-Karjalan korkein vaara Pielisen rannalla Lieksassa. Koli on lähinnä valkoista kvartsiittia, ja sen laella on suuria puuttomia, paljaita valkoisia kalliopintoja, jotka tuovat mieleen lumihuippuiset vuoret. Kolin tärkeimmät huiput ovat Ukko- ja Akkakoli, jotka on ehkä nimetty vanhojen jumalien mukaan, sekä Paha-Koli, jossa on jyrkkä seinämä. Kolin korkein kohta on Ukkokolilla. Kolin vaaran juurella on Kolin kylä. Alueella sijaitsee Kolin kansallispuisto. Koli on keskeinen kansallismaisema ja maisemanähtävyys. Vuoteen 1973 asti Koli sijaitsi Pielisjärven kunnan alueella, joka siinä yhteydessä yhdistyi Lieksan kauppalan kanssa Lieksan kaupungiksi.
Kolin korkeus merenpinnasta on 347 metriä.
Koli National Park (Finnish: Kolin kansallispuisto) is a national park in the municipalities of Joensuu, Lieksa and Kontiolahti in the North Karelia region of Finland. It covers 30 square kilometres (12 sq mi) in the forested hills on the western shore of lake Pielinen, and was established in 1991. Contrary to the other national parks in Finland, Koli National Park was originally governed by the Finnish Forest Research Institute Metla. It is now governed by the Metsähallitus like the other national parks.
Koli has lots to offer cultural heritage-wise. Formerly, it was a sacrificial site. Later it was used for slash-and-burn agriculture. The aim of Koli National Park isn't to reserve wild nature but traditional agricultural heritage is cherished in Koli. Some fields are slashed, burnt and re-cultivated and hay is cut yearly. Traditional Finnish breeds of cows and sheep are grazing in the meadows of Koli.
