Restaurant Helvetin Portti serves tourists at the gates of Helvetinjärvi National Park from spring to autumn, offering authentic local food and the opportunity to get to know our exotic animals. Here you will find everything you need for your trip, from accommodation to breakfast.

Enjoy the summer on the waters!
From us you can rent some water vehicles for summer days:
Sup board (available 2 pcs) 10 € / hour or 50 € / day, transport 0.60 € / kilometer
Canoe 25 € / day
Boat 20 € / day
The trip doesn’t have to end after leaving the park. In addition to restaurant services, we rent cottages and an exotic yurt sauna, for example. We also offer services to groups with our partners all year round.
During the summer, it’s possible to have a sauna in Hell in a unique, hand-crafted yurt sauna.
In between the excellent steam baths, you can take a dip in the refreshing Lake Kankijärvi.
It is possible to rent the sauna for use either during the stay or just else – book the sauna at the end of the hiking day, for example!
you will find our home farm right next door to the restaurant. Welcome to greet our wild boars and ostriches – it’s free!
