Aapamires in the landscape at Käskyvuori (Käskyvuori)

A forested landscape opens from the tower of Käskyvuori. In the south you can see a mosaic of aapa mire and forests. Aapa mire is one of the few words that have spread from Finnish to other languages. It describes a mire that gets large parts of its nutrients and water as surface runoff from surrounding mineral lands. Aapa mires are typical to the northern part of the country.
