The Pavel trail

Pavel was a very active local resident who created this hiking trail together with Vadsø Municipal Council and the local ski club.

The trail is designed for walking, jogging, cycling or even wheeling prams! It starts at Vadsø Ski Stadium where it is floodlit for the first 1.2 km and ends at the gravel pits in Thomaselv valley. The trail is waymarked in places but the smooth gravel surface means you’ll never lose your way. 

Once you reach Thomaselv, you can either return the way you came or take the footpath/bikepath alongside the road back into Vadsø. The round-trip is about 6 km. 

Start:  Vadsø Ski Stadium car park

Distance: 3 km one-way

Conditions: Easy walk, ideal for getting some exercise and fresh air.
