I stayed for the first time in 1975 in this beautiful village near the lake Pielinen. In 1976 I spent three months in Vuonislahti. The people were very friendly, the nature too. In later times between 1979 and 1990 I visited Vuonislahti with groups, mostly young people, and showed them village, people, and nature. We were fishing, taking boats, sometimes over the Pielinen till Koli. The young people never forget the time in Vuonislahti and remember until today, I know. I hope to come back, this year or the next.
