Isojärvi National Park is one of the largest national parks in the Jyväskylä region and it can be explored on foot, on a kayak or a canoe or on a mountain bike – which one would you pick? The wooded hills and valleys around Lake Isojärvi bear traces left by both two-legged and four-legged loggers – once upon a time Isojärvi was a worksite for numerous lumberjacks. Nowadays logging is performed by hard-working beavers. If you’re lucky, you might run into one of these shy animals!
