This strange rock stands in the middle of the forest balancing on another much smaller rock.

Geologists say that the rock may have been moved by the power of glacier over 8,000 years ago. Whatever it is, this rock attracts lots of visitors. This captivating stone can be found in Valtola, Southern Savonia.

The best season to visit the rock is summer and the beginning of autumn, as you can easily get to the forest. It can be difficult to get to the middle of deep forest during long winter nights when there will be snow and maybe even wolves.
