  • 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.

So the best time to visit Valkmusa for a photographer is at night.
