Torronsuo National Park is located in the Häme Lake Uplands within easy reach of Helsinki. Torronsuo is the largest raised bog in Southern Finland. It's a good destination for a day. Visitors can admire the open bog and its rich bird life from duckboard trails or the park´s high viewing tower. During snowy winters skiing trails cross the bog.

Torronsuo National Park is a good destination for a day out walking, cross country skiing, bird watching or berry picking. The car parks Kiljamo and Pehku by the road from Forssa to Somero at Kiljamo are the best places to start exploring.

An easy 1,5-km round trail starts from Kiljamo. The first 150 metres of this trail is accessible for disabled visitors. This trail passes a campfire site,and the 17-meter high Kiljamo viewing tower. Kiljamo offers splendid views over the open bog.

 Near the campfire site a longer duckboard trail leads over the bog. It's about 3 km to a disused quarry of Härkäsaari. from here it is possible to return to Kiljamo by walking backroads through the village of Torro. this round route is about 10 km, and walkers should have a map.

In winter more than 30 km of cross-country skiing trails are maintained. Ski trekkers can start their trips from Kiljamo, Riihivalkama or Torro, and choose from several alternative routes.
