From the top of Lauhanvuori, a splendid, Lapland-like view opens up to the forests of the vast area, and beyond, up to the sea. The Lauhanvuori Hiking Tour allows you to explore the area’s geological past, traces of the Ice Age, and diversified nature with different waterways, swamps, and forests. The landscapes of the area are characterized by open, dry pine heath forests, lush spruce wood on the top of the hill, and open swamps in the area, which contrast with ponds, springs, and brooks.
