The snow covers the bog, but some grass plants can be seen above the snow surface. Further away in the picture, the sun shines between the small pines.

The drawn emblem of Valkmusa national park. A purple-bordered gold moth is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Valkmusa kansallispuisto - national park wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.
Valkmusa's extensive natural open bogs give visitors a chance to wind down and see, hear, smell and even taste nature all around. Look out for wetland birds and fluttering marshland butterflies, especially in spring and summer when the air is filled with birdsong. Find tasty cranberries growing among the bog moss.
