Kytäjä’s best-kept secret is the unique, untouched nature surrounding the lively village. Visitors have often likened the landscapes and atmosphere to something mystical, reminiscent of the enchantment of Northern Finnish wilderness. Cliffs, marshes, and protected forests invite you to immerse yourself in luxurious and delightful outdoor activities such as hiking, berry picking, and experiencing the various facets of Finnish nature to the fullest.
Most of Kytäjä Resort’s accommodations and event spaces are situated on the shores of the splendid Kytäjärvi Lake and the crystal-clear Suolijärvi Lake. There is no shortage of mesmerizing views in this region.

The pristine nature of Kytäjä and its surroundings offer numerous opportunities for leisure activities. The crystal-clear lakes welcome swimmers, fishermen, ice anglers, and kayakers alike. During the cold, snowy winters, the frozen Kytäjärvi Lake is perfect for natural ice skating, and the Kytäjä area boasts cross-country ski trails for those who want to enjoy the scenic beauty on skis.

The award-winning Kytäjä Golf‘s South East and North West courses are the finest in Finland and a treat for any golf enthusiast. In addition to club members, guest players are always welcome, so you can enjoy the greatest game even if you’re just passing through Kytäjä.

Hiking, Trekking, and Other Wilderness Sports
The popular Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor recreation area, with its numerous nature trails, wilderness huts and hiking destinations, attracts outdoor enthusiasts from afar. You can engage in activities like jogging, cycling, bird watching, or swimming in the expansive outdoor area. The forests are also known for their bountiful berry and mushroom harvests in the autumn, which are free to pick for anyone, as stated in the Finnish “Everyone’s Right”.
If self-guided hiking isn’t your preference, Uudenmaan Erämatkat Wilderness Tours offers guided activities, from hiking and canoe trips to snowshoeing and forest yoga, all in the same terrain.
In addition to the Kytäjä-Usmi outdoor recreation area, Kytäjä’s historic lands offer a variety of interesting cycling routes. For instance, the 51-kilometer-long Pikkupässi cycling route follows the old Hyvinkää-Karkkila narrow-gauge railway embankment.
If you don’t have your own bike with you, or just prefer guided trips, Hyvinkää’s Sveitsi Rent offers bicycles for hire for both adults and children.
Kytäjärvi Lake, at the heart of the lively village, is known for its bountiful perch waters. The local Fish & Trail organizes fishing raft trips on Kytäjärvi during the open-water season, offering guided experiences for those who want to try their luck at reeling in the catch of the day.
For those interested in hunting, Kartanon Riista Hunting Association offers guided trips within Kytäjä’s well-maintained hunting grounds, and hosts roe deer and bird hunts for both businesses and private customers.
