vororotti rift valleyThe most magnificent rift valley in Central Finland, on dry land, with ravines and caves, is located in the Jämsä region. This protected preservation area consists of less than four hectares. There is a rocky and demanding path leading to these impressive cliffs, but the terrain is mostly dry.

As the name Vororotti indicates ('voro' means a thief), Vororotti has often been a hideout for outlaws. In the narrow tunnel, it would still be possible for an observant visitor to be able to notice sooty marks that have been caused by the robbers' campfires.
