Information and key figures
Ypäjä has an original beauty. The variability of the landscape is based on the location between the Tammela plateau and the Loimaa clay area. The Loimijoki River flows westwards through the municipality. There are wide openings stretching from the banks of the river, which are split by wooded ridges. The pastures of “The Finnish Horse Keeper” with their plants and animals belong to nationally significant traditional landscapes. Ypäjä is a natural and cozy commune with beautiful riverside scenery that invites you to live and practice. It is a pleasure to live in Ylä.
