Paihola / Kontiolahti introduction

BestPark Paihola is located by the beautiful natural area right on the banks of the Pielisjoki River in the municipality of Kontiolahti, about 20 kilometers from the center of Joensuu and 60 kilometers from Koli. Paihola is a former hospital area that has developed into a spectacular recreation area over the years.

At BestPark Paihola, you find a BestPoint service module, which is convenient for emptying chemical toilet and grey water, as well as refilling fresh water. In the park area there are also service facilities with toilets and showers.

The Paihola area has activities and attractions for everyone. There is a 18-hole frisbee golf course, which runs partly in the park and in the woods. There are also three nature trails of different length in the forests of Paihola that are suitable for all ages and conditions. There is also a large campfire site along the nature trail, which can also accommodate a larger group. In the summer, customers are also served by Kesäkahvila Kakkulaituri, which has been completely renovated for the summer of 2022. A landscape sauna can be reserved in the area, where it is possible to take a dip in the open air in winter.
