Torronsuo National Park is located in the Tammela, Kanta-Häme region.
Even before its declaration as a national park in 1990, the near-natural state swamp area was a protected area. Its area is 25.5 square kilometers.
The park area is a typical ombrotrophic raised bog – a thick turf layer with its middle part raising above its edges. The turf layer is one of the thickest measured among Finnish bogs, locally extending to 12 meters.
Torronsuo is valuable for its birdlife and butterfly species. Roughly a hundred species nest in the area. Part of the birds and insects are species that typically live in the northern areas, and they aren’t seen much elsewhere in southern Finland.
There are several marked trails across the even Torronsuo terrain (1.5–10 km). A 1.5 km trail, partly covered with duckboards, runs round the island of Kiljamo.
Parts of the Torronsuo National Park are closed to the public during certain times of the year. Please respect the signs!
