Torronsuo National Park
Finnish new series of stamps depicting national parks will show different aspects of nature and the seasons of the year.
In the second issue in the series we travel to the Torronsuo National Park in the southern Finland.
Torronsuo Mire landscape has looked the same for thousands of years. Have a half-day hiking trip around Kiljamo or a one day trip to the southern parts of the park and outside the National Park in the traditional agricultural landscape of the village of Torro. Especially in the spring and the autumn, Torronsuo is a good place to observe the migrating birds, many of which stop to rest on the mire, for example cranes and geese.
In the stamp there is a wonderful, typical picture of a pine tree.
On the sheet there are ten (10) stamps.
The first issue in the series of Finnish National Parks was Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park representing the fjeld scenery.
