Overview

Highlights
  • Celebrate an unforgettable winter holiday in Northern Savonia in the Finnish Lakeland region, the largest lake district in Europe with over a hundred thousand lakes and an equally staggering number of islands, exploring hidden gems and chasing exhilarating adventures.
  • Setting up your base in Tahko, the southernmost full-scale ski resort region in Finland by the lake Syvärijärvi, an excellent location for all winter activities, including skiing on frozen lakes.
  • Unique gastronomic experiences in Kuopio, the laidback Savonian city, awarded as the European Region of Gastronomy capital 2020-21 in honor of the strong coalition of sustainable gastronomy practices and the use of local agri-farm produce in Kuopio's exploding food and drink scene, boasting of an eclectic globe-hopping menu combining the traditional and the new.
  • Visit the iconic Vesileppis Moomin ice cave, where the Moomin saga comes to life with the magical ice sculptures of the favorite characters, built in an underground cave, complete with snow chutes and other wintry fun.
  • A scenic snowmobile safari, experiencing the breathtaking beauty of the snow-laden slopes and other natural sights of Tahko mountain.
  • Set off for a snowshoeing adventure, an awesome way to explore the wonders of the snowy Taiga forest braving the thick snow cover, with a campfire break to fry sausages and have coffee on an open fire. 
  • A night on the Snowcat,  a rugged "snow tank", which can tackle extreme snowy terrain and crawl up even near-vertical slopes of ice, a unique and thrilling way of exploring the snowy mountain slopes.
  • Enjoy a Savonian fine dining menu in a panoramic restaurant offering 180-degree views of the valley and a unique outdoor sauna and hot tub "Palju" experience with breathtaking scenery.
  • Visit Puijo peak nature activity park, and enjoy stunning Lakeland views of the city of Kuopio and lake Kallavesi atop the 75-meter-tall Puijo Panoramic Tower followed by the Farmlunch in the revolving tower restaurant.
  • Indulge in a luxury outdoor spa by the lake Kallavesi, complete with the traditional Finnish smoke sauna and a heated outdoor infinity pool.
  • Visit the studio of a celebrated local ceramic artist, Jenni Linnove, nestled in a charming Finnish garden, where you will explore your inner artistic self and create your own Savonian Christmas memento followed by tasting homemade Finnish Christmas delicacies in the cozy nostalgia-inducing traditional Finnish log house.
Who is this for?
The trail is ideal for small groups seeking a mid-activity level offbeat Finnish winter experience in the calm realms of the Lakeland region. No previous experience is required for any of the activities as they are tailored to suit beginners.
