The Kuopio region offers a perfect setting for all kinds of activities throughout the year, thanks to its lovely unspoilt countryside, beautiful nature with large forests and location in the middle of Europe’s largest lake district.
In summer you can enjoy the Lakeland by boating along wonderful waterways, by boarding a cruise operated by Finland’s largest fleet of inland cruise boats, by shooting the rapids on a canoe, or by going on a fishing trip or a jet ski safari. Golfers will be delighted by the fairways and greens of the Tahko Golf Club in Nilsiä, Tarina Golf in Siilinjärvi, Konnus-Golf in Leppävirta and the Puijo Golf Course in Kuopio. Horse-riding, trips by all-terrain vehicles (ATV) and various adventure trips provide unforgettable experiences in all seasons.
In winter you can explore the snowy countryside by riding a snowmobile along well-maintained routes. The Kuopio region is also ideal for cross-country skiing, either in the woods or on the frozen-over lakes, and the ski centres of Tahko, Kasurila and Puijo beckon those who prefer skiing downhill. You can go ice fishing or skating on a frozen lake and even take part in the Finland Ice Marathon.
The New Year season is the most popular tourism season in the region. Regular snowmobilesafaris, husky dogsledge safaris and a lot of wonderful activities at Santa Claus´ home in Kuopio and at Tahko provide an unforgettable holiday.
