Katiskaniemi Nature Trail starts behind the Rauhalahti Spa Hotel. The trail is mostly located in a nature reserve. The most valuable parts of the Katiskaniemi Nature Reserve are hardwoods and handsome rock pine forests. There is also a flying squirrel on the beach's old wounds and gray lichens. Nature conservation work has been carried out in the protected area between 1999 and 2003 by, among other things, removing spruce from deciduous leaves and adding decaying wood by various methods.

A couple of kilometers (2,5 km) of nature trails follow the beaches of Katiskaniemi. Along the way, you will see the groves and their flora and fauna. Plants and animals on the beach and in the water will also become familiar with the path. The traces of the human hand are represented by the old smokehouse, the Jätkänkämö, and the grazed traditional landscapes.
