Patvinsuo National Park
Scanning the open marshes of Patvinsuo you might be lucky enough to see a distant bear, though bears typically do their best to avoid people. From viewing towers you can overlook the changing marshland scene on misty autumn mornings, light summer nights, or in the springtime when birds flock to the bogs to feed and breed. After a nice walk take a cooling dip by a sandy shore or the lakeside sauna at Suomunjärvi.
Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages all year. Access for wheelchairs, if assisted, from Suomu Nature Information Hut to the campfire site by Lake Suomunjärvi.
