Would you like a holiday with something new every day – in small, digestible pieces? Rustic and romantic, full on activities and pampering. Art and museums, a bit of adventure for the whole family. Do you wish to enjoy your holiday surrounded by nothing but beautiful nature? In Saarijärvi your holiday will be filled with the essence of Finland.

In Pyhä-Häkki National Park you can take a stroll into the best preserved old-growth forests in Southern Finland. See 400-year-old pine trees that bear scars of ancient forest fires. Such forests give you a sense of timelessness, encouraging you to slow down and savour the natural scene. The residents of the old croft at Poika-aho surely told their children tales of the trolls and elves who lived out in the wild woods. National Park is suitable for visitors of all ages. It has an easy access but no services for visitors with mobility difficulties.
