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 2017 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.
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.
