Guided Forest Wellbeing Tour
The forest is a source of well-being
Guided trekking tour on the Metso Wellbeing Trail (1.5 km), in Niinisaari's grove, introduces you to the diversity of the forest and gives you a little taste of how forest can affect wellbeing. Research has shown that spending time walking in a forest environment has a positive effect on the health. Spending almost an hour in the forest rejuvenates the body and relieves stress. Spending time in natural surroundings decreases the blood pressure, boosts the mood and increases alertness. So keep all your senses ready throughout your trip and do not hesitate to stop for a moment and take in your natural surroundings.
Stop-offs along the trail
There are six information boards along the trail. The boards include information about local history, the diversity of the forest and the positive effect of forests on well-being. The boards have also been put up along the trail to prevent visitors from getting lost, so you can set out without any worries.
The local guide will familiarize you with both the history of the region and the positive health effects of the forest. Visitors on guided tours can find out more about the local history and the positive effects of forests on well-being – information that is not available when walking alone. The path is easy to walk, but it is not completely unobstructed.
