Punkaharju is a harju and belongs to Finland’s national landscapes. The narrow ridge section is about seven kilometers long and was created during the Ice age when a glacier basically acted like a giant, uneven scraper on the landscape. Punkaharju became a popular tourist destination at the beginning of the 19th century by Sakari Topelius in his book Maamme and J.L. Runeberg in his poems.

Punkaharju is an Ås that’s an esker in English, a ridge of gravel and sand. The Punkaharju Ås is very beautiful. I visited it quite often. Autumn is the right time to see it and I liked in winter as well.
