This recreational destination for the whole family invites you to learn more about the fascinating world of birds. Liminka Bay is an internationally known, valuable bird water area and a rest area for migratory birds that offers something new to see in every weather, all year round. The best bird and nature centre in Finland features a fascinating exhibition about the eight seasons of birds, presenting the course of a year from the birds’ perspective.
The Liminka Bay Visitor Centre serves visitors right next to the best birdwatching spots. In addition to the interesting exhibition, it offers guide and restaurant services, a souvenir shop, a small nature hotel, an auditorium for 80 people and other meeting facilities. The Visitor Centre also loans out binoculars to visitors, free of charge, so they can enjoy spotting about 200 different bird species visiting the area. A 600-metre-long wheelchair and pram-accessible path takes visitors to the two-storey Virkkula birdwatching tower.
The area also has a firepit and a small playground for children. Visitors travelling by caravans or campers can also stay overnight in the parking area for a small fee. The yard area surrounding the Visitor Centre also features the Kukkala learning environment where you can explore the vegetation in the area and learn more about plants and habitats of the shore meadow. This diversity of habitats is what attracts such a wide and diverse range of bird species to the Liminka Bay area.
One of the specialities of Liminka Bay is a rotating lean-to. Visitors can turn the structure to protect them from the wind or sun while sitting by the campfire.
