Houseboats provide the ideal escape from city traffic and stuffiness, to the freedom and serenity of the Finnish lakes. There are three kinds of houseboats available: Standard, Comfort and Deluxe.
Houseboats leave from the Jyväskylä harbour and can take you to Lakes Päijänne and Keitele through canals. We have put together a map of interesting and useful destinations along your boating route.
A Houseboat is a great way to spend your family holiday with children. In a Houseboat, children have adequate space to play while the houseboat travels along the clean waterways of Finland. Houseboats are equipped with all necessary security devices and messaging systems.
For companies we have created a different way to hold meetings and social events. During a meeting and a social event you will enjoy the closeness to nature. While listening to the soft sound of waves lapping at the hull of the boat and your mind is resting it is good to obtain new ideas for the organization.
The Finnish lake landscape and the warm summer night, can you imagine spending a holiday in a better environment?
Houseboats in Jyväskylä
Houseboats provide the ideal escape from city traffic and stuffiness, to the freedom and serenity of the Finnish lakes. Imagine warm summer nights, where the midnight sun hovers on the horizon. Where you can enjoy the silence while listening to the soft sound of waves lapping at the hull of the boat. Or a hot summer day, anchoring off a secluded beach and swimming in the clear, refreshing water.
On a Houseboat you can easily get to great fishing spots, beaches or discover different Finnish villages and towns along the lakes. And wherever you go, your home is always with you. If you get tuckered out from all the fishing and swimming, your own nap corner is waiting for you just two steps away. On a Houseboat there is room to sunbathe on the roof, make food in the kitchen and there is a bedroom or two for resting.
The sturdy, calm motion of a houseboat is quite different from a motorboat. A Houseboat merges with the serenity of a summer day, you disturb no one and no one bothers you. A Houseboat has a low hull, so it is easy to float close to the shore or over shallow passages where a motorboat cannot go.
Houseboats are easy to navigate. You do not need special boating skills, we will instruct you on how to use the boat prior to departure. If a problem occurs while you are out on the water, we are always just a phone call away. Houseboats are equipped with a Chartplotter to make it easy to navigate the Finnish lakes.
Reviews from our customers
"We spent a group of friends getting a nice summer weekend in the houseboat. Houseboat was Jyväskylä harbor a great location, it was nice to follow the upper deck harbor life. It was also great when you could have a sauna and swim from their own boat. Nightsauna and swimming was a very memorable when city lights can be seen in the background and yet you harbor in your boat and your own peace . The livingroom and bedroom areas were spacious."
"A luxury houseboat with all you want made a great family holiday. We enjoyed the changing sceenery in front of the large living room, the sauna on the boat and the great roof with the grill to relax afterwards. Dishwasher, Coffeemachine, TV and Wi-Fi, a huge shower, just everything you need was on board. We travelled with our three small children and mostly spent the nights at anchor in secluded coves. A really great experience. Completely different from our houseboat experiences in France or Germany."
"We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 nights on our houseboat. Krista was very good with communications prior to our arrival and very relaxed and helpful in getting us set up for our trip and suggesting possible places to visit. The houseboat was well set up - especially appreciated the wifi and onboard sauna which we made use of - although only one of us did the dip in the lake afterwards. There were many pretty spots to anchor up and arms of the lake to investigate. Having the ability to hire bikes to take on board was also great so that we could go exploring islands. All in all a very memorable. Krista was also very helpful with the end of trip activities, enabling us to get off to catch our train."
"Very nice, easy to take a trip through the lake. Easy to drive, well equipped and fun boat."
"We had a fantastic time on the boat. Krista was very helpful getting us going and helping with our itinerary to Saynatsalo and Muuratsalo. Where, how to dock. Best way to experience the landscape and, for architects, Aalto works. Sauna on the boat is perfect."
