Summer in Tahko

Things to do

Tahko is the place to visit during the summer months. Winter is fun here, don’t get us wrong, but when you make it to the top of the hill and you get to stand there quietly and let the pristine nature of the lakes and forests overtake you. Then, and only then, you’ll understand why we are so proud of our town and its surroundings.

Besides the breathtaking scenery, all services and activities in Tahko are easily accessible. We offer the unique opportunity to choose between having an exciting and active time or a relaxed memorable experience in the quietness of nature.

Summer activities include well marked trails for mountain biking (also downhill MTB), golf, hiking, climbing the Tahko outdoor staircase and disc golf. The lake area opens up new opportunities like SUP boarding and canoeing lessons and guided tours. Canoeing trips to nearby islands to enjoy a peaceful sunset by a campfire, are always within a short distance.

Featured activities

We have the longest outdoor staircase in Finland, several hiking trails and a chair lift to transport cyclists and hikers to the top of the hill. There we have a brand new observation tower overlooking the entire Tahko area.

We also have 3 major golf courses, 9 downhill MTB trails, 2 disc golf courses, a well marked mountain biking and hiking trails, a Spa, a bowling alley, a gym, and an indoor adventure park – SuperCorner Tahko. And if you really want to entertain the kids there is an outdoor community park, a pump track bike course, and a petting zoo (Tahko Farm) that offers animal care tours and safaris on Icelandic horses.
