Geography

The habitation in Reisjärvi is clustered into villages ("kylä"). The locals might recognize at least the following villages: Keskusta (the center), Hylkiranta, Järvikylä, Kalaja, Kangaskylä, Kinnulanranta, Kiljanranta, Köyhänperä, Leppälahti, Levonperä, Lokkiperä, Metsäperä, Mäntyperä, Räisälänmäki.

Reisjärvi has a highly diverse nature, with lots of lakes, ponds and smaller rivers, rocks and cliffs but also marshes and lowlands. A very remarkable sight of Reisjärvi nature is one of the northernmost in Finland habitats of wild Small-leaved Lime (Tilia cordata), 63° 38′ N (right after reliably confirmed the northernmost natural habitats in the municipality of Sonkajärvi in the vicinity of the lake Kangaslampi, 63° 45′ N and near the hill Salmisenmäki, 63° 43′ 42" N).[6] There have still been growing 7 old long-boled limes in mixed forest on the cape Kokkoniemi jutting out into the lake Pitkäjärvi. The site is in private possession but it is a grove of national significance which has been under state protection since 13.04.1989.[7][8][9][10][11] Following the Peuranpolku ("deer's path") trailing route, which begins in Reisjärvi, provides an excellent view into the landscape of the area. The cliffs and rock fields of the Raura area have been shaped by the ice age.
