Niskalampi Nature Reserve has various types of forest. Some parts are quite old, which means that there are more rotten wood than in normal Finnish forests. This means that it's a good place for woodpeckers and some other species that prefer older forests. Nice birds you can see here are White-backed Woodpecker, Black Woodpecker, Eurasian Three-toed Woodpecker, Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Wood Warbler, Blackcap, Eurasian Treecreeper, Goldcrest, Eurasian Nuthatch, Red-breasted Flycatcher, Coal Tit, Crested Tit and Willow Tit.
There runs an unpaved road through the area. Best way to explore this place is by cycling or walking. In spring the road can be in quite poor condition. It is also possible to walk in the forests.
