In the forests of Porkkala peninsula…

The forests of Porkkala Peninsula are a popular place for recreational activities. We take our clients often here. The road to the Peninsula is a winding, narrow, charming old road, known already from mid-1600, taking you closer and closer to the Baltic Sea, through the forests. The forests in the tip of the Peninsula are the most special and oldest ones. You will notice the amount of mosses and lichens on the ground and the warped treetops of the old Pines. This is a place to find Boreal Taiga Forests, a priority habitat type in Europe, and fascinating local cultural history.

Potential Observations of animals during the Forest walk..

White-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) or a Roe deer (Capreolus capreolus) are the most likely mammals that you can see in the forests. If you are lucky, you may see also an elk (Alces alces). Little Crested Tit (Lophophanes cristatus) may well come and greet us!

In any case, the tracks and sounds that we will see and hear will open up more about the secretive habitants of the forest.
