Wild TrailsMore than 50 miles of trails wind among pine forests, wild berry patches, and 130 or so lakes and ponds in Finland’s newest national park, which was inaugurated in late 2017 to celebrate Finland’s 100th anniversary of independence. In addition to natural wonders, visitors can take in rock paintings that date back 4,500 years. Overnight options include campgrounds, lodges, and rental huts such as the log cabin–style Pikku-Hossa, which has a sauna and views of Lake Kenttäjärvi.
