Patvinsuo National Park

Sparsely growing trees and some shrubs growing at the forest floor. There is peatland at the background.

The drawn emblem of Patvinsuo national park. A bear is depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Patvinsuo - national park in Swedish and Finnish wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.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.
