Traditional Landscapes

Karoniemi peninsula

In many places of Ruokolahti our history and old ways are still visible. Especially in Karoniemi, a 7 km peninsula on the island of Äitsaari, you'll find traditional Finnish landscapes including farming areas, meadows and cattle fields.
The plantlife includes rare species typical only to such traditional biotopes, which are getting increasingly rare.
