METSO-Wellness path (self-tour)
- Ylössaarentie 35, 52200 Puumala
The purpose of the Metso well-being trail is to introduce you to the diversity of the forest and give you a taste of how the forest can boost your well-being. The well-being trail has signposted functional/historical stopping points. These are intended to help you to benefit more from your walk than if you just carried on without stopping.
The forest is a source of well-being
This trail aims to create a feeling of well-being. Research has shown that spending time walking in a forest environment has a positive effect on the health. Spending almost an hour in the forest rejuvenates the body and relieves stress. Spending time in natural surroundings decreases the blood pressure, boosts the mood and increases alertness. So keep all your senses ready throughout your trip and do not hesitate to stop for a moment and take in your natural surroundings.
Stop-offs along the trail
There are six information boards along the trail. The boards include information about local history, the diversity of the forest and the positive effect of forests on well-being. The boards have also been put up along the trail to prevent visitors from getting lost, so you can set out without any worries.
