Natural trails in Tohmajärvi
The Kemie nature trail (6 kilometers long) in the center of Tohmajärvi parts from the Music Institute of Central Karelia (Keski-Karjalan musiikkiopisto, Kirkkotie 16). There is map at the start of the trail and reading available along the trail about the plants and wildlife, geology and cultural history of the area. The trail is quite demanding due to the hilly terrain.
The Aconitum route (6.5 kilometers long) departs from the Tohmajärvi church parking area (Kirkkotie 590, Tohmajärvi) or from the Turusenniemi (Oravaarantie 516, Tohmajärvi). The Aconitum route leads the hiker to cultural landscapes (the church, cemeteries etc.) as well as to the Peijonniemi birdwatching tower.
Mikonpolku in Saarionvaara (2 kilometers long) offers lovely views, and there is a clean spring along the way. A new tepee was built in autumn 2012. The trail begins from the road "Pitkälammentie" (when you turn from "Saariontie" to "Pitkälammentie", drive approximately 1,2 kilometers). The trail is marked on the terrain with green fiber ribbons.
