The shores of Central Finland's multitude of lakes can offer visitors an extensive selection of holiday cottages, from fully-equipped log homes to simple fishing cabins.
An excursion into the undulating Central Finnish landscape is a true delight. In summer a relaxed walk in natural surroundings, a boat cruise, a stroll through a field of fragrant wheat and enjoying the taste of everything nature provides are in themselves activities of the finest sort.
For those wishing to explore nature on foot Central Finland has plenty to offer. Every municipality has clearly signposted nature trails and hiking paths which criss-cross the varied terrain of Central Finland. Why not try the Metso trail in Laukaa, which offers plenty to see over dozens of kilometres? A hot drink and a picnic can be enjoyed at one of the many lean-to shelters to be found along the route. For the adventurous a night under the stars is an experience never to be forgotten! Read more...
At the height of summer it’s a joy to cool off in refreshing lake water. In Jyväskylä the best advice is to head for one of the shallow beaches on Lake Tuomiojärvi, located just north of the city centre. A multitude of lakes both big and small, rapids and rivers enrich the Region. The power of pollution-free waters provides visitors with classic Finnish experiences at their very best.
Set off on a relaxing cruise, enjoy the region by boat, rent a canoe and paddle your way through some beautiful lake scenery. Take a break in the harbour or at one of the locks along the Keitele-Päijänne canal. Splash about in clear, refreshing water – straight from a lakeshore sauna or without.
Lake Päijänne and the Keitele-Päijänne canal form an extensive and varied waterway system for those travelling in their own boat. The northern end of Lake Päijänne offers boaters an extensive selection of places to visit.
