Summer cabins continue for a kilometer further down the gravel lane. This walk down the lane is a nice stroll in the summer or winter. At the start of Åsvagen is the Poikkijärvi Church. This is another unique destination as the cemetery continues 500m on a narrow pine peninsula with a chapel at its end.
Runners/x-country ski paradise: There are miles of dirt trails though the surrounding pine & moss forests. The dirt trails are spongy, yet firm, & easy on the knees. World's class trail running with a choice hilly or flat routes.
