The Vihaslahti bird tower and nature reserve
Vihaslahti is a habitat or stopping place for numerous bird species, which can be spotted eating or nesting in the area. Hikers can also see the sheep in the surrounding fields in the summer. Vihaslahti is part of the Vihas-Keihäslahti nature reserve. You can reach this area by hiking or by bike easily along the duckboards that continue as a nature trail starting near reastaurant Lohilaakso (Salmon Valley). The distance from the Visitor Centre is approximately 4 kilometres. There’s a bird tower at end of the trail, as well as two campfire sites, toilet and a covered information board. Follow the path until the Maristonpakat sand eskers, located just a stone’s throw away from Vihaslahti. Climb up the new wooden stairs to admire the views!
