Hiking – right here in Ylöjärvi

The smell of pine forest is everywhere and a vast esker landscape opens up before you. A pot of coffee is brewing on an open flame. You unwrap your packed lunch, thinking there’s still time to go to a cabin or Seitseminen National Park for an evening hike. Wherever you wish to be – by a lake, in the shade of a forest, on a hike or by a campfire – this page will get you into the right mood!

Seitseminen National Park is one of the most popular destinations in Ylöjärvi. Pikku-Ahvenisto Nature Trail, found in the esker area, is the number one choice for families with children and those who like to be close to the town centre. From Ylöjärvi, you can cycle round Lake Näsijärvi or to one of the spots featured below. See the nature destinations and routes for active travellers on this page to make the most of your trip!

You can go hiking on your own or with a local guide. Read about organisers of guided trips here. You can also check out the Ylöjärvi Retkelle map service for canoeing and hiking routes.
