Overview
More
Pirunkirkko is a 33-metre-long Z-shaped boulder cave to which several mystical stories are connected. Pirunkirkko is located along Rantatie Road, 12 km south of Koli. There is a path with many steps from the parking area (located by the road) to the cave. It is easy to turn off from the Herajarven kierros Trail to Pirunkirkko along the Ennallistajan polku Trail (Nature Restoration Trail).

Very tiny cave in the bottomn of Koli hills. Does not recommend to visit it, unless you are really out of ideas what to do. It is a couple of minutes stop.

Stairs to the cave might seem a bit scary but do not skip it. The kids absolutely loved it and enjoyed the hike. Bring a flashlight or use the mobile phone one which is sufficient.
