Juuka - On the same trip

Juuka has such a unique tourist destination due to its variable landscape, thick luscious forests and numerous islands and stop-over destinations: the sceneries from the lookout points on top of the dense forested hills or the breath-taking views of lake Pielinen from Paalasma, the highest island in Finland, bring about the beauty of the natural landscape of Finland. Juuka’s most popular attractions have caught the eye of tourists from all across the world. The 11 different nature destinations invite you to visit them to create new memories, build new friendships, rekindle old friendships and help you find yourself amongst the beauty of the Karelian mires & virgin forests, shop amongst friendly local entrepreneurs and satisfy your urge for Exquisite Karelian foods that will leave you content, satisfied & whole.

  • Admire the pearl of the Pielinen - the archipelago of Paalasmaa! The main Island of Paalasma is one of the most densely populated islands in Finland.
