Trail of Sands in Yyteri

Trail of Sands ('Santojen Lenkki' in Finnish) offers you the best parts of the unique dunes of Yyteri. Enjoy the amazing scenery opening up to the sea, spot typical plants that grow in the dunes and sit down on the sand at Munakarin särkkä to have a break. In the forest dominated by pine and lichen, it is nice and peaceful. Finally, ascend on top of the dune Keisarinpankki, where the nature is surprisingly lush and the view over the beach and sea impressive. The sands of Yyteri are definitely worth seeing and experiencing!

Meet the Forest

My number one favourite thing to do is simply walking in the forest. Forests have such a peaceful and calm atmosphere that it is impossible to come out from a forest with a frown – a smile is always guaranteed! A forest is a good listener when you are sad or stressed and will also dance with you when you are so happy that you just can't hide it. Spend a little time in the fresh air, watch the blue sky and feel the presence of the peaceful old trees around you, maybe even see some wild animal – this is the forest.
