The lake Spitaalijärvi is one of highest lakes in the Geopark-area. Over 175 metres above sea level, the lake has naturally slightly acidic water, which has been believed to cure skin illnesses. The pH of the water is 4.7, which is close to the pH of human skin. The acidity is caused by the local quartz rich soil, and the mire situated next to the lake.
