Kurjenrahka National Park
Within easy reach of the historic town of Turku, the forests and marshes of Kurjenrahka are home to many wild animals and birds, including stately long-legged cranes and curious woodland owls. Kurjenrahka National Park includes the largest mires of Southwest Finland which are in their natural state, and the surrounding forests, of which some are old. Kurjenrahka National Park is a great destination for day trips or longer and offers lots of trails to explore. The park is brilliant for relaxing, spotting different species of birds, walking, skiing and hunting for geocaches. Skiing is one of the best ways to get to the heart of the park's tranquil wetland scenery in the winter.
