Repovesi National Park is Southern Finland’s most popular hiking destination and you can get there by public transport within 2 hours from Helsinki. The National Park offers plenty of lakes and hills. There are campsites and shelters and it is located nearby the city of Kouvola and accessible by public transportation.

In my opinion, Repovesi National Park is more enjoyable than Nuuksio and it is less crowded too. On the way back to Kouvola we hitchhiked and someone picked us up just after 10 minutes standing on the road. Repovesi National Park is definitely worth a visit.
