The Witch of Nykälä

According to local folktales, a witch lived on the Nykälä peninsula in Lappajärvi 300 years ago. The witch, the stories tell, was a mean-spirited mother of ten, who didn’t hesitate to cast the evil eye on anyone who crossed her path.

But today’s Witch of Nykälä is a kind witch. She has walked on the footsteps of the Lapps and eventually found herself at the crater lake, where she made her home. The Witch plays her old drum and uses her potions and spells for good. The Witch’s programs are suitable for everyone, regardless of the time of year or the weather.
