The Saimaa Seal trail forms a network of paths in the diverse range of landscapes near Saimaa. The path leads through heathy esker terrain, lush wetlands and rocky lookout points.
The area of Saimaa Seal trail emerged from underneath the continental ice sheet during Saimaa’s ice lake stage around 11,500 years ago. The types of rock found are typical to the area; mica gneiss and granite pegmatite. Kettles and ancient shore terraces add a little extra to the landscape. The Greater Saimaa stage shorelines along the path are a little over 84msl.
The path is marked and there are Saimaa Geopark signs, swimming places, campfire spots and an accessible lean-to shelter along the way.
