The Birgitta Trail is a trekking route that offers the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the nature and cultural history in Lempäälä. It is possible to choose the route and the lenght of the trail. The route was officially opened in 1997, and it was selected the best trekking route in Finland in 2006. The route was named after the noble landmark of Lempäälä, the 500-year-old St Birgit Memorial Church of Lempäälä.

The great variety of the Birgitta Trail offers wonderful opportunities for both a short stroll and longer hikes. You can choose both the starting point and the length of the hike according to your own preferences, and there are attractive route options for families with small children as well as the most demanding hikers. No winter maintenance.

There are ample possibilities for taking a pause and making a campfire along the path, including huts and Finnish laavus, lean-tos, for overnight camping. For making a campfire you may use firewood in the shed. Please keep the environment clean and take the garbage that cannot be burnt along with you.

The route offers a variety of stony and smooth paths, thick forest and clear-cut areas, as well as grassy areas and jogging paths covered in sawdust. Hundreds of metres of duck-boards and dozens of footbridges facilitate trekking in the moist areas of ground. The path is well signposted.
