Seitseminen National Park ("Seitsemisen kansallispuisto") is located in the municipalities of Ikaalinen and Kuru in Finland. The national park was established in 1982 and later expanded in 1989. It now covers convert|45.5|km2|sqmi|1. The park is typical of the barren coniferous boreal forests of the Suomenselkä watershed region. Parts of the park are the most ancient old forests of the type accessible to public in Finland.

The Kovero Farm ("Koveron kruununmetsätorppa"), a tenant farm established in 1859, is part of the cultural heritage area of the park.

Seitseminen National Park received the European Diploma of Protected Areas on June 19, 1996. It is valid until June 2011.

Fauna

The mires – that cover more than half of the park's area – are inhabited by Black Grouses, Common Cranes, Whooper Swans, Wood Sandpipers and northern Willow Grouses. The old-growth forests house hole nesters such as Eurasian Pygmy Owls, Ural Owls, Three-toed Woodpeckers, Red-breasted Flycatchers and the Siberian Flying Squirrel. The emblem species and the most common species in the park is the Pine Marten.
