Torronsuo National Park
Torronsuo National Park is located in the Häme Lake Uplands within easy reach of Helsinki. Torronsuo is the largest raised bog in Southern Finland, and a good destination for a day trip at any time of year. Visitors can admire the open bog and its rich birdlife from duckboard trails or the park´s high viewing tower. During snowy winters skiing trails cross the bog.
Torronsuo National Park is a good destination for a day out walking, cross-country skiing, birdwatching or berry picking. The car park by the road from Forssa to Somero at Kiljamo is the best place to start exploring.
An easy 1,5-km round trail starts from Kiljamo, with the first 150 metres of this trail accessible for disabled visitors or parents with pushchairs. This trail passes a campfire site and the 17-metre-high Kiljamo viewing tower, which offers splendid views over the open bog.
From near the campfire site a longer duckboard trail leads over the bog for about 3 km to a disused quarry of härkäsaari. from here it is possible to return to Kiljamo by walking backroads through the village of Torro. this round route is about 10 km, and walkers should have a map.
In winter more than 30 km of cross-country skiing trails are maintained at Torronsuo from january to March by a local association. Ski-trekkers can start their trips from Kiljamo, riihivalkama or Torro, and choose from several alternative routes.
