Valkmusa national park, Finland


Recommended Posts

While in Finland I visited the Valkmusa national park. Valkmusa is located in southern Finland and covers 17 square kilometres of several different types of mires. I only saw a small part of the park, as I only followed the 2.5 KM board walk. Visitors are advised not to walk on the mires during the nesting season, or I would have liked to explore further.

I was impressed with the size of the place - it's a rare sight to see bogs stretching far into the distance. The pictures were taken on june 23.

They have more intact habitat upthere, and less people. Here in our country maybe D. anglica was a common plant a 1000 years ago when there was still a lot of prestine peatbog here.

All gone now except a few tiny fragments, but almost 17 million people...
