Punkaharju Nature Reserve

The Punkaharju esker ridge has been an international tourist destination for two hundred years due to its beautiful surroundings. It is one of Finland's national landscapes and the beautiful lake views seen between its majestic pines are still the biggest attraction of the area. The area's landscape is easy to explore along marked trails and paths, which crisscross along the ridge. The Puruvesi and Pihlajavesi lakes shimmer brightly between majestic pines on summer days. It is not difficult to understand why the Punkaharju Nature Reserve draws a steady stream of visitors every year.
