The Himos Trail is an atmospheric trail running experience for runners of all levels and ages. The trails are great places to exercise even in winter, when nature shows its best sides in a different form. The routes are designed to show all the best parts of the Himos area – and there are plenty of them! There are the smallest and most beautiful trails, the most visually stunning places and the best views without forgetting the untouched terrain and stunning swamps. Successful snow trail trails require regular trails through the winter. In the Himos area, they are kept open not only by commuters but also by tourism entrepreneurs and the iron-hard Himos Trail team. With exceptional altitude differences in southern Finland, the Himos Winter Trail offers wonderful physical challenges as well as long insanely winding downhill trails. The routes revolve mainly in the unspoilt old forests of the most beautiful area of Himos, Paljakka.

The machine demonstrations have become particularly popular, and the event offers a large number of these.

The quality professional skills of the exhibitors and the investment in customer service and product demonstration create the good, relaxed atmosphere for which the event is highly praised.
