Wildlife and birdwatching

Rock and Lake offers great circumstances for birdwatchers and nature lovers to experience the birdlife and nature of Finnish Lakeland. Nine of Rock and Lake rental cottages are situated in an area between a nature reserve called Pukkiselkä and a FINIBA area by Lake Kyyvesi.

In the cottage rent includes also a map with marked areas of interest, bird-watching tower and safe paths and forest roads to the watching places. In spring 2019 we’ll also make a new nature trail with marked birdhouses on the way. This trail will also have a “lake version”, this is because many of our waterfowl nest in birdhouses and you can better watch them from a rowing boat.

In spring 2019 the first guided birdwatching trips will take place. Guiding languages are English and Finnish. The guides are all keen birders with outstanding local knowledge of Finnish birds. We will arrange birdwatching trips all year around. For more information, please email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We also rent boats with silent electrical motors, canoes and hides. On the map you can, for instance, see places for hides next to areas where Western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus karelicus) is courting.
