Höljäkkä features a number of interesting places, although most of them may seem to be "in hiding", because hitherto, they have hardly been marketed. Worth visiting are among others the following:
- Village centre which dates back to the first years of the 20th century when the railway was built
- Höljäkkä Youth Association House which was built in 1932. The house is at present the place of many social activities like summer theatre, Saturday market, cafe, etc.
- Höljäkkä-Porosaari Cemetery with graves of the war dead from the Finnish-Soviet Wars 1939-1944. As a forest cemetery the Höljäkkä-Porosaari Cemetery is rather uncommon in Finland.
- Of the former school houses the South Höljäkkä school buildings are in private ownership but the North Höljäkkä school is used as a permanent home for retired forest workers.
