Trip to the beautiful ice age cape Rastiniemi. Here you can see the very end of the second Salpausselkä ridge that was formed at the end of the last Ice Age appr. 11 000 years ago. The retreating ice sheet melted until a colder period started. The edge of the ice stopped at one place and that was how Salpausselkä ridges were born. In Rastiniemi, Lake Saimaa’s waters broke through the ridge and it was fallen apart.
