Top. Fait ce jour par temps ensoleillé. Raquettes non obligatoires mais crampons conseillés +++. Magnifiques points de vue tout le long du trail.

Great trail around the lake here with some really nice views of the surroundings. The trail can get a bit messy and soggy after a lot of rain fall, but you'll be fine with some good waterproof shoes. I guess the trail will be very easy with dry weather. I really like it for a short walk! Great scenery.

Amazing hike just outside Helsinki- a great day trip to explore natural Finland. Bring food and water as if you take public transport there isn’t much once there. Quite cold in the winter!

10% duckboards, 30% forest trails and 60% forest roads. Duckboards quite slippery when wet and some of them were in a poor condition. Signs and markers poorly visible, especially at junctions and one has to be relatively alert not to get lost. Not very scenic, possible to do the loop in 5 hours with 2 stops.

March 2019. We could not believe what an amazing trail this was, especially for the many feet of snow on the ground! We packed snowshoes and saw people in snowshoes, but the trail was so well packed, we didn’t need them! Just really good, waterproof hiking boots! We wore snow pants and may layers and definitely peeled some top layers off but thankful for snow pants. This is a gorgeous trail with only a few intense uphill areas. The trickiest part (in winter) are some of the stairs that have iced over. Be sure to take it slow and hold the ropes and be considerate of others nearby. The many miles in the snow definitely exhausted us in the best, most refreshing way possible. The scenery is so beautiful and peaceful and seeing the river breaking through the ice was magical. Posting a map photo that can show parking options. Highly recommend.

We went in late Feb and love that snow is packed to hike in it! This was a pretty flat trail that was so peaceful in the winter snow. But when you get to the open swamp area, the trees look so cool and parts of the trail had begun to melt in the sunshine, so watch your step! The visitor center here was super helpful and friendly! A great winter morning walk.

Superb. No wonder this is the most trafficked trail in Finland. Very few people in late February. With mild +4C and mostly sunny the conditions were ideal.

We hiked the entire karhunkierros trail. It was amazing. Finland takes very good care of it’s natural areas. I loved the firepits, shelters, and swimming areas at every stop! What a great 82 kms.
