The path goes up and down like a wave. We have conquered many hills. The squirrel has felled a tree.
We look under the clear surface of the water. We try to see our nose. A perch swims by.
We can bathe our toes from the rocky shore. A king has probably also done this. Or a king’s dog.
The shore of lake Meiko is a nature conservation area. It is said to be a pearl for good reason. Meiko’s three well-marked routes of different length invite adventurers into the peaceful nature. The varying terrain offers something for everyone. In addition to the routes Kuikankierros, Meikonkierros and Kotokierros, you can also take a shorter route of about one kilometre to a campfire spot where you can eat your packed meal.

Play a game
One of the players is chosen to be the one who tries to catch the others. The others run away and try to get to safety by hugging a tree. When a player is caught, they change roles.
Tip: You can play the game in two different ways; along the way to your destination without a limited area, or in a certain area where you decide on the boundaries for the game.
