What you'll do
We will meet near the conservation area where I will tell you about the history of the canal and delta of Höytiäinen. After that we will walk the 2,5 km route through the area. We stop at the bird watching tower half way of the route. There you hear more about the area and we can try to spot some birds which the delta of Höytiäinen is famous for. Then we walk the rest of the route to our starting point.
Hi! My name is Ville, I study geography and biology at the University of the Eastern Finland. I enjoy hiking in the nature and would love to share the beautiful conservation area, delta of Höytiäinen with you. I have been visiting this unique conservation area frequently since I moved to Joensuu four years ago and my honest opinion is that if you enjoy hiking in beautiful locations, you should go here at least once!
Where you'll be
Our starting point is a small parkinglot near the conservation area. We will stop in the middle of the route at the bird watching tower and the last stop is the starting point or the beach near by if you want to go there.

Big part of Finnish summer and nature are mosquitoes and other flying insects so you might want to by some repellents or wear clothes that cover your skin. The route itself don't have much elevation but you need to climb short stairs to the bird watching tower.
