Speed up with a jet ski

Jet ski is an excellent choice for shallow water areas and getting to know the places that are impossible to access with the houseboat. They are also a great way to explore the Finnish lakes, rivers, islands and beaches.
Steering a jet ski is as easy as steering a motorbike. You just need to turn the handlebars to go one way or the other. You can fit one to three people on the jet ski. This is a perfect choice if you are looking for an excitement of speed. Jet ski accelerates easily and that’s why you need to be extra careful with steering.

Experience the maximum speed ashore

In the city of Jyväskylä, rally driving has a huge impact on the culture of the area. The partial race of World Rally Championship is held between July-August and it has long roots up to year 1951. Back then, the event was known by name “Jyväskylän Suurajot”, Jyväskylä Grand Prix. The race has a reputation of being challenging for non-nordic drivers; only five drivers outside of Finland or Sweden has ever won it. It is also the fastest event in the World Rally Championship and one of the most popular public events in Nordic countries.
