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.
