Houseboats in Jyväskylä

Wildlife watching, undiscovered islands, never-setting midnight sun – Lake Päijänne and Lake Keitele have lot to offer for those who enjoy the nature! In the Finnish lakeland, the serenity and authenticity can be sensed on the waters, in the nature and in local people.

On a Houseboat, you’ll have a possibility to escape the busy schedules of everyday life and sail in the waters of Central Finland. Re-energize by going to original Finnish sauna, by fishing and by picking the nordic berries. The experience is completed by accommodating in the most beautiful lake landscapes.

Operating a Houseboat is easy and no special licences or earlier boating experience are needed. Along on your journey, you’ll have all the comforts of a home. Houseboats are located in the city of Jyväskylä – take the lead and conquer the second largest lake of Finland with your floating summer house!



Houseboats provide the ideal escape from city traffic and stuffiness, to the freedom and serenity of the Finnish lakes. There are four kinds of houseboats available: Eco-Wood, Standard, Spa and Deluxe.



Houseboats leave from the Jyväskylä harbour and take you to Lakes Päijänne and Keitele through canals. We have put together interesting nature- and culture-themed boating routes.

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."

Despite the attempt to show an almost Southern European bustle (misleading) and quirkiness (true if you dig deep enough), the thing that struck me most on both my visits was the exquisite stillness you can find among those forests and lakes.

What about the midges..?
