By opening the Map layers menu and selecting the layer Multiple-use forests of forestry and then Sites of high natural value and Other special sites, you can find yourself in an old-growth forest, a lush spruce bog, next to a brook, or overlooking a beautiful landscape. Sights, such as cultural heritage sites or natural monuments, can be viewed using the separate destination menu. Protected areas and hiking areas can also be found under a dedicated section.

You should zoom close enough on the map to allow you to see even the smallest individual sites. The hand selection tool can be used to display the destination information.
