Nature trail from Nax to Eison

On this 15 km long educational trail, you cross bubbling streams, follow the course of three "suonen" ("bisses", ancient water courses) and gain an insight into the typical way of building barns, sawmills and mountain huts in this region. An illustrated guide describes the fauna, flora and buildings you'll see along the trail. Each thing to look at along the way is marked with a number to match the description.
