Vasikkavuoma is the largest haymaking mire in the Nordic countries, if not in Europe. Spread over the vast mire area stand about 80 barns, a remnant of when farmers in times past harvested sedge and horsetail for fodder. There is grill facility and there are plank ways out on the mire. The area is 2 square kilometres in size.
There is a car park.
The reserve lies about 10 km from Pajala. Drive westwards on road 395. Turn left into the village of Erkheikki, from where it is signposted to the car park.
