Rokua National Park
Inland dunes and scenic kettle hole lakes in Finland’s first Geopark!
When you explore the esker ridges, sandhills and kettle hole lakes of Rokua it’s easy to see the clear traces of the Ice Age that explain why this area forms part of Finland’s first UNESCO Geopark. Family-friendly trails lead off through the park’s wooded sandhills, where the forest floor is blanketed with silvery lichens. Scattered through the park are many kettle hole lakes nestling in sandy hollows.
In nature conservation areas, everyman’s rights do not apply in the normal way. Please always check the rules of the destination before making your trip. National parks are nature reserves, whose key task is to safeguard biodiversity and enable people to enjoy and relax in nature on the terms of nature conservation.
All national parks in Finland are managed by Metsähallitus.
