Helvetinjärvi National Park - Cottages and Vacation Rentals
In the Helvetinjärvi National Park, deep gorges, lush green forests and narrow glimmering lakes form an unforgettable landscape. The most famous view opens from the top of the Helvetinkolu Gorge down into the gorge and over Lake Iso Helvetinjärvi. The Helvetinkolu Gorge has been a popular tourist destination since the 1800s. Sturdy footwear is recommended for hiking trips, due to the considerable differences in altitude. In the southern part of the national park, the terrain is lower-lying and the sandy Haukanhieta beach is an ideal destination for a whole family wanting to spend a relaxing summer’s day. Other activities in Helvetinjärvi include climbing, abseiling and ice climbing. Accommodation options include the camping areas and the Hieta reservable hut. The Helvetin Portti restaurant serves as an info point for the park in summer. Its delicious wild boar and ostrich meals are well worth a try, attracting visitors from afar.
