Raesärkät hiking area
• The Rae Dunes make for a day trip in a beautiful landscape of rolling hills. The hiking trail running through the area follows the old wagon route with its wheel ruts. There are rest stops at short intervals along the trail, which makes it very suitable to families with
children. In addition to the hills the dune landscape also includes bogs, crystal-clear lakes, meandering rivers and virgin forests filled with wildlife. Visitors have admired the Rae Dunes for decades and the area is a popular local recreation site.
