The Juupajoki Gorge is one of the many nature attractions of Juupajoki. In the nature reserve, an ice age mound of 21 m, there is a refreshing microclimate and a mysterious atmosphere that awakens the imagination of the traveller. Along the nature trails that pass through the rich variety of leafy vegetation, you may well come across a variety of creatures of Finnish forest mythology, such as trolls and elves.

CHALLENGES IN TERRAIN: Paths are partly narrow, slippery and challenging. Please note, in general the Gorge area is not wheelchair or stroller accessible. Due to the natural terrain, the area has steep, in some places very slippery and narrow paths. We do not recommend more challenging trails for the disabled. We recommend visitors to use sturdy mountain shoes. The Gorge area is not maintained in winter.
A new wheelchair and stroller accessible observation deck and lean-to campfire place is now open as part of Gorge area. With a valid parking card for people with disabilities parking is allowed at church’s yard Kirkkotie 15, 35500 Korkeakoski.
