"Hiking in Patvinsuo National Park --- Part 1" Lieksa Travelogue by gubbi1

Lieksa Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 55 photos

From the parking you will follow this sign which will lead you directly onto this beautiful 3,5 km round trail.

Almost all of the trail is covered with duckboards, which are essential to be able to get around in the very wet mires.

You might think that many of the photos look similar, but this just represents the huge size of the swamp.

But at some points there are some small trees...

.. while on there are areas with no trees.

Here we are heading to the first of the two 'islands' of rocks in the swamp.

But first we have to cross the last parts of wide open mire...

... which gives many beautiful perspectives before climbing the rocky island.
