Valkmusa National Park Reviews
Beautiful swamp park with lots of berries, mushrooms and colours in autumn! Parking and busstop on the west entrance of the park. Good signposts. more »
This small national park is situated in the municipalities of Pyhtää and Kotka. It is quite hard to get there by bus. There is a bus stop only 200 meters from the national park but there aren't very..... more »
A good place not to visit later in the day as there are a lot of mosquito's about. Great views and you have to realize it is a swamp without the mud. You walk around on wooden walk ways over the water.
Valkmusa National Park is a perfect place for those who want to enjoy the beautiful Finnish nature for a short time or all day. The duckboards and pathway can feel difficult to pass for disabled people. But the unusual vegetation in the area is worth a visit. Bears, wolves and moose have also been seen in the area. So the best time to visit Valkmusa for a photographer is at night.
