Coronavirus is spreading fast in North-Karelia. Our shop Koli Shop Retkitupa and rental services are still open: we ask our customers to follow very carefully Covid-19 instructions. The services of Metsähallitus (information, exhibitions and shop) in Koli Nature Centre Ukko (we are located in the same building) are closed starting from 1.1.2022. Metsähallitus customer service is available every day between 10–15  by email (ukko @ metsa.fi), by phone 0206 39 5654  and in social media channels.

We ask our customers to:

  • wear a mask and use hand sanitizer (available in Koli Shop Retkitupa)
  • maintain social distance
  • stay at home if you have any symptoms
  • when renting e.g. snowhoes contact us by phone +358 400 231 332 or email info @ feelkoli.fi, and tell us:
    • what do you want to rent
    • how many adults or students and children under 12 yrs old
    • when you come to pick up the rental gear
    • for how long you want the gear for (see rental prices)
    • height and shoe size for each person renting the gear
  • we can take the rental gear outside for you: one person can come inside to pay and others can wait outside; when returning rental snowshoes, leave them outside and one person can come inside to tell, that you have returned the gear.
