Kvarken Archipelago – Risö and Sundominlahti
Risö is a rich forest area between Vaasa’s motorway and Sundominlahti, in the Tuovilanjoki delta. The area is made up of ancient and rugged spruce forests, young and often thinned mixed-and birch forests as well as rocky pine woods. The name Risö dates back to the 17th century when the area was still a separate island.
Sundominlahti is an almost two kilometer wide and green gulf which is both an important resting spot for migrating birds as well as a nationally important area of water for birds.
