Activities in Kuopio and Tahko
Nestled in the heart of the Finnish Lakeland – in Kuopio, Tahko and Savo – you’ll find plenty of things to see and do in all seasons. No matter the weather, your options are endless inside or outside.
The purest nature and most beautiful waterways create memorable outdoor experiences for everyone. Fantastic hiking destinations, the fourth largest ski resort in Finland, the internationally-renowned Finland Ice Marathon ice-skating track, a selection of world-class spas and scenic golf courses are just some of the ways you can fill your days on a holiday in Kuopio-Tahko area.
The largest watercourse in the region, Kallavesi, offers a wonderful setting for sports, activities and fishing in the summer. The region also has the largest number of inland cruises in Finland – and the lakeland landscapes are truly stunning. For a once-in-a-lifetime experience, be sure to visit the world’s largest smoke sauna in Kuopio. And, for a truly authentic experience you can jump directly into the fresh lake water from the sauna.
In addition to outdoor activities and sports, you can spend some days exploring the shopping paradises located across the area and visit some of the many cultural, dance, and food events that happen throughout the year.
