Embraced by the natural world

Kytäjä is surrounded by unique and pristine Finnish wilderness including extensive forest and mire areas. Forests, lakes, ponds, streams, and cliffs comprise a wilderness area, which diversity is beyond comparison.

The area offers diverse opportunities for outdoor activities, hiking, and sports. In the Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor area you can hike among magnificent cliff clusters, explore old and alluring granite mines, swim in crystal-clear lakes and rivers, stop for coffee by a campfire, and spend the night in a lean-to listening to the hooting of the eagle owl.

In autumn, the Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor area offers excellent opportunities for berry and mushroom picking. In winter, the beautiful and quiet area with its extensive ski track network is a favourite skiing destination. The area includes around 40 kilometres of marked ski and hiking trails. For example, the 18-kilometre Seven Brothers Trail offers a hiking experience to be remembered.

The magnificent cliffs, include the 25-metre Jaanankallio, are highly popular with rock climbers. For kayakers, Lake Suolijärvi, Lake Kytäjärvi, and the Kytäjoki River provide experiences and challenges. Indian canoes are available for rental from local operators.
