Lake Päijänne for boaters

Lake Päijänne offers boaters the Finnish lake nature at its best – on your way you can stop and enjoy the spectacular scenery of Päijänne National Park and its sandy lagoons, traces of the Ice Age and the services at small village marinas and guest harbours. You can begin your boat trip already from Lahti and Lake Vesijärvi, which is connected to Lake Päijänne by Vääksy Canal. If you desire, you can continue your trip all the way up to Jyväskylä!
