Repovesi National Park is known for its huge rocks. To get this photo, I stood on one of the most famous ones, Olhavanvuori. This 164-feet tall rock is a climber's paradise—expect to meet some professional climbers there. Apart from that, it's a very peaceful place. You'll be able to enjoy the panoramic view while listening to the birds.

This photo was taken from Olhavanvouri viewpoint in Repovesi National Park. To get there, you first need to drive to the entrance of the park, located at Saarijärvi (61.196940, 26.882618). You can get there by taking Road 368 from Kouvola. The parking spot is located right off Kuismantie Road.
Once you're there, follow the signs to get to the Korpin Kierros trail. It's around 2 km (1.5 miles) away from the parking lot. The trail is a round trail, and you will want to take it counterclockwise. This way, you will reach the peak much faster.
The signs at the park are quite clear but you can also insert these coordinates (61.183562, 26.843687) into your Google Maps to see where the trailhead is.
Once the trail starts, it is an immediately steep hike up, but it doesn't take long to reach the top of the rock, where you will have these beautiful views.
