Varkaus is also the perfect starting point for anyone wishing to explore the Linnansaari and Kolovesi national parks. Linnansaari is a paradise for canoeists, kayakers, and boaters in general, and the islands here are home to the endangered Saimaa ringed seals, and many ospreys. Kolovesi is likewise popular with everyone who travels over water, its landscape dominated by the 40m cliffs which were carved out in the last Ice Age.    photo © MEK Finnish Tourist Board
