Salussärkkä and Rantalansärkkä are beautiful eskers in the waters of Pohjaslahti. They are a very attractive environment for a summertime excursion. Salussärkkä has even been called “Little Punkaharju” after one of the most famous eskers in Finland.
Two kilometres long, Salussärkkä and Rantalansärkkä are part of the same esker formation that dates back to the Ice Age. Most of the area is a protected nature reserve. The Salussärkkä esker is located in Ala-Kolkki, along the road to Ruovesi, and Rantalansärkkä is located a few kilometres to the north, in Ylä-Kolkki.
