FINLAND’S TALLEST WATERFALL – KORKEAKOSKI
Korkeakoski is the tallest free-flowing waterfall in Finland and a popular tourist destination. The waterfall was formed after the ice age when water found its way into a fracture line in the bedrock, formed millions of years ago.
Korkeakoski is located off highway 77, between Pielavesi and Maaninka, and is approximately 40 km away. The Korkeakoski river gets its water from several small lakes and runs into Maaninkajärvi, surrounded by steep rock faces. The drop height of Korkeakoski is 36.4 metres. The waterfall is located in a nature reserve, established in 1947.
Next to Korkeakoski are the fish tanks of Löytynlohi, where you can fish for farmed rainbow trout.
SOME TIPS FOR AN ACTIVE HOLIDAY AT LOSSISAARI
Lossisaari is located in the middle of Lake Nilakka, which offers some of Finland’s most abundant fishing opportunities. There are also rapids and current spots available nearby for those who enjoy river fishing (e.g. Äyskoski, the best inland rapids in the Nordic countries for brown trout fishing), as well as fish farm tanks for people who prefer easier fishing.
In winter, you can experience ice fishing from above the ice or emptying nets underneath the ice.
Along the 1.7 km nature trail that runs around Lossisaari, you can find both natural and constructed spots for fishing with a hook and line or for angling.
If you wish, our professional fishing guides will take you on a guided angling or trolling trip on Lake Nilakka or the nearby rivers that are rich in fish.
