Lake KutajärviПоказать на карте
Lake Kutajärvi is located south of Lake Vesijärvi. These two became separate lakes due to the drops in the water levels of Lake Vesijärvi. Lake Kutajärvi is part of the national Waterfowl Habitats Conservation Programme and the Natura 2000 -network. There are two bird observation towers in the area. There is a nature trail leading up to the bird observation tower and the trail includes information boards.
You can get to the bird observation tower for example from the Rantatie road on a trail. The road has been marked with a ''Kutajärven lintutorni'' signpost. There is a small parking lot for a few cars next to the signpost. From the Lahti city center it is about 15 kilometers to this destination, so it can be cycled also. It is also possible to get to the Lake Kutajärvi by buses 4 and 11 (you have to change buses at the bus stop of Tarmontie). When using the bus it is recommended to drop off at Kutajärvi old-people's home, from there it is less than half a kilometer walk to the start of the trail. On the trail there are information boards about the vegetation, fauna and especially the birdlife of the Kutajärvi area. When using the bus, please check the current timetable for the bus at lsl.fi, there may be some changes from time to time.
