Rokuanvaara Hill has dry forests, which offer quite easy terrain for hiking trips lasting a couple of days. Rokua has several hiking trails, and many services.

Rokuanvaara Hill is an esker formed of sand, and its barren dry forests are covered in bright white lichen. There are many small lakes with clear water, ancient shoreline embankments from the earlier stages of the Baltic Sea, and deep holes in the esker, called “suppa”, which have been formed during the Ice Age. The National Park is located on the southern side of the hill, where old pine forests grow in their natural state. The area is one of the northernmost places where rare and threatened species typical for eskers can be found.
