Experience the relaxed atmosphere of Finnish country life and the diversity of our nature – forests, swamps, lakes, rivers, and fields.
Hike along duckboards in Kauhaneva-Pohjankangas National Park, cycle along country lanes, paddle in River Karvianjoki, spend a day fishing, pick berries and mushrooms, or swim in the velvety softness of the pristine ponds.
The tranquil of Karvia’s nature attracts a multitude of wildlife. Here the ruggedness of arid lichen heaths meets the mystique of the wetlands. You may catch a glimpse of a deer, an elk, a fox, an otter, a stoat, or a beaver.
Take some time to relax and observe the rich birdlife; hear the mating calls of the willow ptarmigan in the spring night, and the soft murmur of the nightjar in the summer. Lake Suomijärvi, known as the “bird lake”, is a popular nesting place of many bird species.
