Beautiful intact nature. The trail from Haukanhieta is easy and consists of a 5,5km path to the "hole of hell" there the view is really nice. Nothing spectacular though and you will take the same path back. Easy to access and it was almost free...More

Vaelsimme kauniina lauantaipäivänä Haukanhiedan pysäköintialueelta Helvetinkolulle (5,5 km) ja takaisin. Sää suosi, polut ovat selkeät ja portaat sekä pitkospuut pääosin kunnossa (matkalta löytyi vain yksi murtunut porras). Reitti on helppo kulkea ja maisemat kauniit, suosittelen Helvetinjärveä helpoksi maastokohteeksi. The route from Haukanhieta to Helvetinkolu and...More

Helvetinjarven (Hells Lake) doesn't live up to its name at all, it is stunning with some beautiful views as a reward. The circuit takes you through woodland, heathland, bog and to the top (and bottom) of a cliff. I visited with my 6 month old...More

There is very nice 4km path when you start from Kankimäki. It's well maintained and easy to walk, only if you wish to go down by the lake there is lots of stairs (it's not necessery to enjoy the views). It's fun to climb up...More

We hiked about 4-5 kilometres trail with 7 and 9 year olds. It was a bit short hike for our family, but we wanted to try the only circle trail that is available in Helvetinjärvi. We started the hike from Kankimäki parking. We went there...More

Definitely worth visiting when in Central Finland or in near Tampere. Easy to walk through even with kids (we had 3 kids along, smallest walked all the way and they were 4 years old and one in backpack). Hint: take something to grill with you,...More

There are several national parks that can be visited in day-trips out of Tampere. The most famous is probably Helvetinjärvi N.P., because apart from the usual trees and lakes here can be found also a gorge. To get information, maps and brochures we first drove...More

Helvetinjärvi is about one hour drive from Tampere. The scene is typical Finnish; lake and trees, hills, rocks and paths. Ideal place for hiking, canoeing or hiking shorter or longer paths. Or just making some coffee or having picnic. Pick berries and swamps. If you...More

In my opinion the Helvetinkolu Gorge is nothing special but you got to love the hike in a silent and rugged forest with cliffs, rocks, small bonds... So it's a nice place for a hike. The con in helvetinjärvi National park is that there are...More

We went there, hoping to find a real canyon but ..what a delusion! We passed by without recognizing it: it's just a 2 m large and steep walkable pathway that jumps down 20 m to the lake. Nothing to be shaked for, though the indication...More
