What are we going to do

Sheep take care of the traditional hilly landscape of Puustila Scenic Farm in Ilomantsi. On our guided nature trail over the meadows and pastures, you learn about the local nature, slash-and-burn forests and the conservation of the traditional environment. During the hike, we stop at a bonfire in the shelter of the forest, to drink coffee or tea brewed on an open fire. Along with the drinks, we serve a savoury snack and something sweet. After the hike, we show you the products that are made from our sheep.

The hike is for groups of 6-20 people and lasts about 3 hours. The route mostly passes through forest paths and is 1.5 kilometers long.
