Valkeinen circle trail

The crystal clear lake Valkeinen has a circle trail going around it. The trail is about 5,5 kilometres long and in the middle of it there is the Pökkelöniemi hut, where you can have a break. The difficulty level of this trail is easy, so the trail can be enjoyed by the whole family. If you prefer to take a longer hike in the trails, you can continue your journey from the lake Valkeinen all the way to Salamajärvi national park in Kinnula or head towards Reisjärvi, as the trail is part of the Peuran polku trail network. The circle trail is only one of the many activities you can enjoy while visiting Valkeinen.

You can also rent a cottage by the lake to spend more time by the spectacular lake Valkeinen. Next to Valkeisjärven leirintäalue there is Riistaravintola Pikku Peura,which is a catering-restaurant. You can reserve the restaurant for birthdays, weddings and other celebrations and the food will be delivered. Notice that Riistaravintola Pikku Peura is only open by reservation.
