Sapporo circle trail is a challenging route that takes the hiker to the most beautiful landscapes of Vuokatti. As located at the heart of the Vuokatti holiday resort, the trail with its altitude differences and challenging terrain is well suited for day trip destination.
The highlight of the Sapporo trail is rising up to the hill Keima, halfway between the route. The scenic landscape that opens up from the top of Keima takes the thoughts away from the busy everyday life. The old forests and unique mires on the nature reserve area of the hill also offer spectacular views for the hiker. The uphills of the Sapporo trail burden the traveler, but the downhills, as well as the resting places along the route, make the hiker's job easier.
You should also have a first aid kit and a drinking bottle with you.
In case of emergency, call 112 (The emergency number in Finland).
