Birdwatching location


Pyhä-Nattanen

 

Location

 

11 km from Vuotso along the road to Sompiojärvi, a path starts to the north and leads about 2 km to the top of Pyhä-Nattanen fell. This fell is in The Sompio Nature Reserve, so it is forbidden to leave the trail when there is no snow cover. There is a refurbished fireguards’ shelter at the top of the fell in case of bad weather. There are fine views of the Sompio Nature Reserve and Lake Sompiojärvi from the top.

 

Birds

 

Bird species inhabiting the fells such as the Whimbrel, Golden Plover, Lapland Bunting, Northern Wheatear and Ptarmigan can be sighted in the summertime.
