Oittaa Nature Trail

The Oittaa Nature Trail is about 1.5 kilometers. The landscape is spruce-dominated but the coastal forest and black alder mire near Bodomjärvi provide variation to the terrain. This nice circle trail is suitable for the whole family. Along the trail, there are information boards that contain information about the surrounding nature. The starting point is next to the main building of the Oittaa Manor and the trail is marked with yellow signs. The trail is easy, however, there is a rocky slope towards the end, which is fitted with steps for easier access.
