Nature Path: On Vänö there are two signposted hiking trails of different lengths. Along the 2.5 km long trail to the northern beach there are signs with information about the island's nature and history. Here you can see traces of the Ice Age, moving boulders, prehistoric beaches and smooth rock surfaces. The path to the chapel passes flocks of sheep and the chapel is surrounded by a heather moor that extends all the way down to the sandy beach. The top of the chapel's slope is a favorite spot for birds, so be careful. In this area you can see the Salpausselkä III ridge rising to the surface from the seabed.
