Suitable as a two-day trip for families and cyclists interested in birds and nature
This route is suitable as a two-day trip for families and other cyclists, who are interested in birds and nature. Cosy countryside accommodation is available, i.e. cabins and traditional Finnish 'aitta' accommodation (sort of granary). Siikalahti bird lake, which is located in the vicinity of the Parikkala municipality centre, is the eastern bay of Lake Simpelejärvi. Its exceptionally diverse nesting and migratory bird population make Siikalahti a true bird paradise! There are several bird watching towers on the tour.
