Overview
More
The Kelvenne trail is situated in Päijänne National Park and is especially suitable for a day trip. The trail can be walked either from the south of the island (Kirkkosalmi) to the north (Likolahti) or vice versa. M/S Elbatar sails to Kelvenne Island from Padasjoki four times a week in July and once a week from Asikkala. Kelvenne Island can also be reached by water taxi from Padasjoki or by charter cruise (Asikkala, Padasjoki or Sysmä) during summer. The trail is suitable for hiking and Nordic walking and it is accessible from May to September. The path starts at Kirkkosalmi and it is marked with blue painted marks. Trail passes through beautiful esker and lake scenery. There are a number of sheltered bays which are beautiful places to rest, and there are also several campfire sites. Beside the esker landscape, the effects of the Ice Age can also be found in the form of kettle holes: one of the kettle holes has formed a small lake in the middle of Kelvenne Island!

Nice Saturday ride first on ice to Kelvenne and then on the Kelvenne trail from north to south.This winter was very little snow so it was possible to bike on the trail. Great scenery and sunny weather.
