Lauhanvuori National Park features one of the highest places in Western Finland, Lauhanvuori Hill. You can walk up Lauhanvuori Hill to the viewing tower to get panoramic views over the forested lowlands stretching off to the shores of the Gulf of Bothnia. The most attractive birds in the area are Common Crane and Black Grouse, but with a bit of luck it is also possible to encounter Willow Ptarmigan and Peregrine Falcon.



There is a car park in the middle of the single road leading through the national park. There starts a road into the forest, that leads to the swamp and a little lake. Everything is accessible by bike, car, feet or even wheelchair.
