Trekking in Finland

Finnish Lakeland is a paradise for nature lovers. In the surroundings of the rental cottages, cabins and villas there are hundreds of kilometers of good forest roads and paths, all great for trekking and biking. Thanks to the unique Everyman’s Rights you are allowed to move on these roads and paths, without asking permissions. However, there are some rules to follow, so please read more about them on a page about Everyman’s Rights. A good basic rule is that you may move very freely in the nature, but keep a distance from houses and private beached. Approximately 100 meters is enough, but if you get the impression that the residents are disturbed, please move away from them. There are huge areas of just forest and lakes without buildings so it is easy to enjoy the Finnish nature without bumping into other people and their houses. Please study example routes which we have gathered on this map.

When staying at a cottage or villa by Lake Soukkio you can borrow bikes from the meeting point, that is Taipaleentie 60, Luusniemi. The deal is that you can borrow bikes for free, but you have to pick up and return them yourselves. Find out more about family holiday homes by lake Soukkio by clicking on the link.

If you prefer moving in the nature on guided paths, we can recommend two areas nearby. One is Leivonmäki National Park and the other is Pieksämäki nature trails. Both areas are family-friendly and less than one hour drive from your rental holiday home. In Pieksämäki you can also go biking with your mountain bike. There are appr 40 km of routes for biking. If you want to rent a MTB, please check our rental bike offers.
