Laajavuori Nature Trail

Add this destination to my travel plan

Laajavuori Nature Trail is located in the Laajavuori ski and outdoors resort and runs through a varied forest terrain. Approx. 4 km long, the trail runs mainly through spruce forests, with rocks and small bogs adding interesting variation. The path was serviced and realigned to run along a more attractive and safer route on the western side of the ski slopes.
