Valajärvi - Puhinniemi recreation area

Puhinniemi is a forested, natural cape on the shore of Lake Valajärvi in Hämeenlinna. The 30-hectare area has forest trails and two campfire sites. As a specialty, Puhinniemi has two stone-age dwellings. Worked quartz stone cappiles and signs of fire-keeping were found in the area in 2006. In the 1960s, a prehistoric vessel from the Iron Age has also been found at Puhinniemi.
