Not to mention the neat, almost alpine landscapes, alternating behind the window on the way to the base. Small red houses, as in the picture, are geometrically regular, well-groomed fields, apparently satisfied with the artiodactyles ... In general, the eye begins to rest on the road.

Water
In the country, thousands of lakes of reservoirs in fact more than 190 thousand. And their purest water is not an exaggeration, but a confirmed fact. According to a UNESCO report, 80% of the country's water is “exceptionally clear.” Locals drink it from the tap, and some, accustomed to take everything from life, can sip a glass or two straight from the lake to impress visitors. It turns out.
This is because the Finns are extremely sensitive to environmental issues and treat nature as the main national wealth. Whatever the forest, then the green gold, that neither the lake, the pearl in the diadem of the country's water system.

And because of the poachers, for whom there is nothing sacred, except profit, there are no places for real fishing within the country greatly diminished. Although there are many fishing bases, but, remembering the very traditions, many provide the minimum amount of amenities: less furniture - less damage after the next check-in. And bases with conveniences often fly into a pretty penny.
In addition, in order to keep the business afloat, the fry cannot be dispensed with without additional feeding and artificial launch. Naturally, the quality and quantity of nutrients in such fish is much lower. And the fishermen themselves on these lakes and rivers are like kilka in the bank. Such is the irony.
The location of Lieviska Family's park in this sense is close to ideal. Just imagine: a distant cottage without screams and eyes of neighbors, a restrictive chain-link, a quiet hour or loud evening get-togethers - there is only water and green around a radius of at least 300 meters ... no one will interfere with your siesta and holidays.
To appreciate the charm of solitude, it is not necessary to take the bait. But to leave here without a vivid impression about fishing is simply impossible. And impressions for the whole family.

Regardless of the approach, you fall in love with the process from the first steps to a deserted creek, where from the sounds only the birds talk and the blows of lonely boats on the pier.

On another day, you rush to joint fishing with your son, lean on the oars, cutting through the mirror silk of the waters.
Every time is unique.
