Western Lakeland


Western Lakeland in Finland

Jyväskylä Region is also known as the Sauna Region. Jyväskylä "the capital City of Alvar Aalto" is the green and blue hub of Central Finland, its forests and lakes serving as ideal terrain for all the active young people the city's educational facilities attract. At just a 45-minute drive from the city, the ski resort Himos is ready to fulfil all outdoor expectations.

Häme Region is a fascinating mix of old and new. Hämeenlinna is a medium-sized city with two impressive castles to visit, large park areas to enjoy and galleries and museums to visit, among them is the enchanting Iittala Glass Museum. The National Parks Torronsuo and Liesjärvi are less than a one-hour drive from Hämeenlinna. In the Häme region, the positive aspects of city life are combined with adventures and slow life, peace and quiet. 

Lahti Region is known for its wood architecture and design, manor houses, cottages by the lake, outdoor activities, well-being services, lake cruises and shopping. Lahti and the region around the city offers all of these, and only an hour away from Helsinki and its international airport.

Tampere Region, the Sauna Capital of Finland, is a great example of industrial heritage reinvented for modern urban purposes. Cafés, shops, restaurants, cinemas, galleries and museums in old factory buildings are complemented by the glittering lakes Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi that surround the city.
