Urban Nature Tour
2-3 hour guided tour around the Koskensaari island. During the trip we will hike the Koskensaari forest trail and enjoy the packed picnic lunch by the lake. The forest trail
will follow the lake shoreline and it has small hills.
On the forest trail you will follow the stream of the Kymijoki-river, listen to the birds singing and the forest humming in the middle of the city.
The Koskensaari island is a part of the National Urban Park of Heinola and it’s Konnivesi archipelago. It also belongs to the Salpausselkä Geopark area. The island is
an outdoor recreation area, especially important for birds, such as Long-tailed Tit and Lesser Spotted Woodpecker. On the forest trail one walks along the Kymijoki-river.
On the other side of the river one can see the development of the Heinola City from the days of baths into an industrial center. The packed picnic lunch will be enjoyed by
the picnic area in the southern part of the island. Listen to the stories of the past of the Koskensaari island, who would have guessed what it has seen?
