Siikaneva is the largest contiguous area of swamps in Pirkanmaa and the province’s most important swamp conservation area: the majority of the area is swampland subject to state preservation orders or individual conservation areas. The swamp covers an area of more than 10 km². Most of it is in a natural state.

Siikaneva is a superb place for a day trip when there is no snow: its diverse range of wildlife and landscapes can be admired from paths that are mostly equipped with duckboards. Siikaneva is located to the west of Main Road 66.
