Hervantajärvi and Suolijärvi nature trail

Around the lakes Hervantajärvi and Suolijärvi there are a few kilometer long nature trails, which are also connected to the bigger Birgitta Trail and Kaarinanpolku trail. The trail around the lake Hervantajärvi is about five kilometers long and marked, with a terrain varying from rocky forests to lakeside. The lake itself is known to be a good spot for fishing, and there are also quite many species of butterflies that find this area a good habitat. Along the way, you can also visit the forest chapel and if you’re very lucky, you might even find some cranberries!

The trail around Suolijärvi lake is some 4,5 kilometers long and on the lake you can also find a nice swimming beach. Nature lovers will be happy about the vast range of tree and plant species growing in the area, and while walking you might also hear a very Finnish sound: a black-throated diver calling from the lake. Opposite to the swimming beach the cliff gets quite steep, highlighting the sceneries even further. You can find the guidebook for these two trails in Hervanta (in Finnish) from here or take a look at the Suolijärvi trail virtually in VirtualTampere website.
