A unique and active destination
In Finnish Lakeland and Northern Savo area – Kuopio, Tahko and nearby areas – you’ll find plenty of things to do and see in all seasons and in all kinds of weather – outdoors and inside. Pure nature and beautiful waterways are present everywhere and create memorable outdoor experiences for everyone. In Capital of Lakeland, you’ll find fantastic hiking destinations, the fourth largest ski resort in Finland – Tahko, the internationally renowned Finland Ice Marathon ice-skating track on the Lake Kallavesi as well as varied spas and scenic golf courses.
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, as you can imagine, stunning. Kuopio has the world’s largest smoke sauna, from which you can jump directly into the fresh lake water – in summer and winter.
In addition to activities and sports, it’s also worthwhile to explore the shopping paradises in the area as well as numerous events and other places to visit.
