Evo's forests are home to wildlife including elk, lynx and beavers. Facilities by Evo's excellent fishing waters have been designed to make them comfortably accessible to fishers of all ages. Evo is a great place to bring the whole family for an adventure.

Evo Hiking Area is just a short drive away from the big cities of Southern Finland. The area offers many kinds of nature-based adventures: pick your favourite from activities such as hiking, fishing, skiing and hunting.


Evo Hiking Area is an excellent fishing destination for beginners and seasoned fishermen alike, and therefore ideal for families. If you want to fish from a boat, there is a boat hire spot in the Niemisjärvet fishing zone. The lakes and ponds in the area are regularly stocked with trout. Lake Vähä-Koukkujärvi is reserved for fishermen aged 12 or under. Fishing on Lake Syväjärvi is reserved for visitors staying at the rental cabin there. There are also many natural lakes and ponds that are suitable for lure fishing and angling in the area.

History and Sights of Evo Hiking Area

Evo has been inhabited since the 1300s, but there is very little information available about the early days. In the 1800s, when the general parcelling out of land was carried out in Finland, the forests of Evo became surplus land of the state, and they were logged without pity for tar burning and to hew planks. Slash-and-burn agriculture was also common.

Natural Features of Evo Hiking Area

Evo is located in a watershed region, higher than its surroundings. Small lakes and soil low of nutrients are typical in the landscape. Traditional forestry has affected the development of the natural features in Evo. Moist and dry forests are the dominant forest types. The Pine (Pinus sylvestris) is the most common tree species, more than half of the forests in the area are pine forests. There are not many lush places in Evo. Also mires in their natural state are rare. Along Niemisjärvi Nature Trail or Harjupolku Nature Trail, the hiker can learn about mires.

The hilly landscape was shaped by the Ice Age. The highest altitude in the area is 160 metres above the sea level on Syrjänalusenharju Ridge, the tops of which have never been under water.


The Moose (Alces alces) is common in the forests of Evo, especially in the winter. The emblem animal of the area, the Lynx (Lynx lynx) is very occasionally seen in Evo, but its pawprints can be found on the snow. Other interesting mammal species found in the area are the Canadian Beaver (Castor canadensis) and the Siberian Flying Squirrel (Pteromys volans). The Beaver lives in brooks, and the Flying Squirrel in spruce-dominated mixed-wood forests, where old Aspens (Populus tremula) grow.


Of tetraonids living in the area, the most common is the Hazel Grouse (Bonasa bonasia), and the Western Capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) and the Black Grouse (Tetrao tetrix) can also be seen. The nesting bird species of the many small lakes of Evo include the Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula), the Black-throated Diver (Gavia arctica) and several hawk and owl species. The Red-throated Diver (Gavia stellata) and the Osprey (Pandion haliaetus) are rare nesting species. Swans and a few other species of anseriformes stop to rest in Evo during their migration.


The most common fish species in Finland, such as the Pike (Esox lucius), the Perch (Perca fluviatilis), the Burbot (Lota lota) and the Roach (Rutilus rutilus), live in the small forest lakes of Evo. In the recreational fishing area Rainbow trouts (Oncorhynchus mykiss), Arctic chars (Salvelinus alpinus) and Trouts(Salmo trutta) have been planted.
