What is Koli
The Koli National Park lies in North Karelia, Eastern Finland, on the western shore of Lake Pielinen and covers 3000 hectares. Established in 1991, the uncommonly beautiful national park and diversifield winter tourist centre is administered by the Finnish Forest Research Institute.
Koli has inspired many painters and composers, e.g. Jean Sibelius, Juhani Aho and Eero Järnefelt. Eero Järnefelt painted together with A.W. Finch and Ilmari Aalto a large scenery about Koli in 1911. It can be seen in the restaurant of Helsinki railway station. Painters found Koli in the 19th century and after that Koli has been called one of the national sceneries of Finland.

A few kilometres from the Koli peaks is a natural cave called the Devil's church, which is well worth a visit. There are many tracks around and on the hills, with all sorts of terrain to see. And the view from the top really is beautiful. During the wintertime Koli is a skiing centre with options for both downhill and cross country skiing.
