Pyhä-Häkki National Park

14.7.2021
During a forest fire warning (ilmatieteenlaitos.fi), fire is only allowed at covered campfire sites that have a flue or in fireplaces at huts, but only with extreme caution. The one who lights the fire is always responsible for its safety. Making a fire at campfire sites can be banned locally.

The drawn emblem of Pyhä-Häkki national park. A black woodpecker and dead standing trees are depicted inside the oval symbol. The text Pyhä-Häkki - national park in Swedish and Finnish wraps around the outer edge of the emblem.Take a stroll into the best preserved old-growth forests in Southern Finland. See 400-year-old pine trees that bear scars of ancient forest fires. Such forests give you a sense of timelessness, encouraging you to slow down and savour the natural scene. The residents of the old croft at Poika-aho surely told their children tales of the trolls and elves who lived out in the wild woods.

Suitability: Suitable for visitors of all ages. Easy access. No services for visitors with mobility difficulties.

The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland, Lakeland.
