The photos are deceiving as you can't get down the holes....at least not now in May. There is no ladder besides them being filled with water. GREAT place for bouldering around, afternoon hike, exploring lovely forest walks.

Interesting place if you are into geology and geographical phenomena. You need a car of your own and if you visit them on a nice summer's day, pay a visit to the sandy beach of the nearby island of Rautiosaari. Ask locals for directions.
