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.

Rock and Lake Trail has been opened! The cottages on Lake Soukkio are located near to the trail, but it is worth coming from further afield. The nature trail is marked and open to everyone. See more at the link below.

If you prefer moving in nature on guided paths, we can recommend a few areas nearby. There are two national parks not more than a little over an hour drive away from our rental cottages and villas: Leivonmäki National Park and the Southern Konnevesi National Park. Both have excellent possibilities for all kinds of nature activities. Pieksämäki Watershed trails are just 45 minutes and Häkkilä Trekking trail no more than half an hour drive away from the Rock and Lake rental cottages. Except Southern Konnevesi National park, these destinations also offer a great terrain for MTB.
