Kammiovuori

Kammiovuori

Kammiovuroi is the second highest place in southern Finland located nearby Lake Päijänne with an altitude of 221 meters.

It took me about 2.5 hours to drive by car from Järvenpää to Kammiovuori. There is also the Päijänne National Park nearby.

It was only a short hike of approx. 2 km from the parking lot to the top of the hill (actually a 3.8 km long circular path), where I also found a wooden table and benches.

Moreover, there is also a Lavvu along the way where I found a hut with firewood. There are a few other sights to see on the way up – the seven-meter-high Linta Rock and Hezekiah’s Cave. Hezekiah was a vagabond who lived in the cave here to hide from the authorities for the past century. We also discovered a fireplace where we warmed up.

I liked the picturesque view of Kammiovuori and was able to take great pictures from the top during autumn and winter.

If you have the time, you should also visit Vähäniemi Beach, which is located near the Pulkkilanharju ridge.
