The Emblem of Päijänne National Park - Lesser Black-backed GullThe pristine waters of Lake Päijänne wash the sandy shores of a chain of islands formed by an esker ridge that dates back to the Ice Age. Take a boat trip or rent a kayak and explore the park's many islands and their sandy coves and rocky shores. The nature trail at Pulkkilanharju ridge, accessible by road, also offers fine lakekand views. Look out for ospreys soaring over the lake. 

Suitability: In summer, suitable particularly for visitors by water. No services for visitors with mobility difficulties.
