Hiking routes and trails

In addition to the Yyteri sands, you can head for the Yyteri bird shore, a particular favourite of waders. We do recommend the silt shore to all birdwatchers. The silt shore is around 3-5 km from the sand dunes, depending on where you start. You can also take the longer route and take in parts of the Bothnian Sea National Park. The route is marked with signs and the bird shore area is covered with duckboards. Thanks to the numerous platforms, access to the bird shore is easy. There are in fact several platforms and 15 viewing towers for nature enthusiasts along the route. Meanwhile, there are more than 30 kilometres of hiking trails.
