There are four wellness trails to choose from. The main trail, the Metso wellness trail, was designed by Tapio Oy. There are stops along the trail with information to draw hikers’ attention to pleasant senses such as the scent of wild rosemary or the sound of birdsong. A solitary hike is perhaps the best way to take in the trail, but it is also enjoyable with a group of friends.
The main trail is 2.2 km long and is divided into three shorter, very different parts, which can each be walked separately. The shortest section is only one kilometre long.
