Its flooding in Salamajärvi. At least near Matolampi, Valvatti and Nielujärvi there is so much water on the duck boards, that not even the shafts of rubber boots are high enough.
Follow in the hoofprints of wild forest reindeer on the Peuran Polku Trail. You might even spot some of these rare animals. The park's varied wild scenery includes rockstrewn pinewoods, open bogs and lakes full of tasty fish. Use the facilities at Koirasalmi as a base for exploring the wilds.
