Alan Rogers Review

Koljonvirta Camping is a large but quiet site located about five kilometres from the centre of Iisalmi. There are 200 marked grass pitches, 120 with electricity (16A). The site adjoins a lake and has a small beach and facilities for boating and fishing. Iisalmi town itself is on the northern edge of the Finnish Lake District and provides a good variety of shops, including some factory outlets, and an interesting variety of events during June, July and August. These vary from the world famous ‘Wife Carrying’ World Championships to the Lapinlahti ‘Cattle Calling’ Competition and the International Midnight Marathon.

Alternatively, you can visit one of the town’s museums or the Saint Eliah Church. Close to the campsite is a well known battlefield from the Swedish-Russian war (1808-1809) when Finland was still part of Sweden. Numerous re-enactments take place when you can meet Colonel Sandels and Prince Dolgoruki and fight side by side with Soldier Bang. The site has cottages available to rent plus a renovated room for three persons with a small kitchen.
