#10 of 15 in Parks in Pirkanmaa
Seitseminen National Park is located in the municipalities of Ikaalinen and Ylöjärvi in Finland. The national park was established in 1982 and later expanded in 1989. It now covers 45.5km2. The park is a typical mix of upland and lowland coniferous boreal forests of the Suomenselkä watershed region. Upland areas are dominated by closed productive stands of Norway spruce and Scots pine while lowland areas are covered by sphagnum swamp and bog areas that also contain stunted and shrublike . These swamp and bog areas appear to be barren due to the sparse tree densities. Parts of the park contain some of the most ancient and oldest forests that are accessible to public in Finland.
The Kovero Farm, a tenant farm established in 1859, is part of the cultural heritage area of the park.
Seitseminen National Park received the European Diploma of Protected Areas on June 19, 1996. It was valid until June 2011.
The mires – that cover more than half of the park's area – are inhabited by black grouses, common cranes, whooper swans, wood sandpipers and northern willow grouses. The old-growth forests house hole nesters such as Eurasian pygmy owls, Ural owls, three-toed woodpeckers, red-breasted flycatchers and the Siberian flying squirrel. The emblem species and the most common species in the park is the pine marten.

  • Nice and well marked routes! Nice walks available, for over-night stay remember to have enough water and bring water filtering tables/system.
  • Beautiful park with wooden bridges, old growth forest, lake, place for fire and wood and an educational heritage village. Great for all ages, also open in the winter for cross country skiers.
  • Beautiful place with beautiful atmosphere. Perfect for walk and cleaning your mind.
  • Some of the last remaining old growth trees in Finland. Last chance to see how the forests were before money replaced them.
  • Beautiful forests and well maintained camping site.
