The Emblem of Liminka BayWatch the winged inhabitants of Finland's best bird wetlands. Liminka Bay (Liminganlahti in Finnish) is an internationally important wetland reserve blessed with rich bird life, especially during the spring and autumn migration seasons, when huge flocks of geese, cranes and graceful whooper swans arrive. Nature photographers also fly in from far away to shoot local specialities including colourful ruffs performing their ritual courtship dances. Liminka Bay's attractive visitor centre spotlights the wonderful world of birds.
