HOLIDAY ON A HOUSEBOAT
During your holiday on a houseboat, you have numerous activities right on your doorstep.
You can fish from the side of your houseboat, and when the motor is off you can jump in for a swim alongside the boat.
Boating routes for all your needs
Along your route you will find many great places to trek inland, small sandy beaches, and protected coves, still undiscovered by others.
The houseboat can be anchored close to a golf course, or you can go inland for an adventure on horseback. You can take your mountain-bike to shore and ride along the trails and country roads. Likewise, you can study the surrounding aqua and shore life with a kayak that you take along with you in the houseboat.
You can take the houseboat along routes that lead you to Finnish cities, towns or even busier harbours. Or you can arrange your route to avoid all civilization during your trip.
Experience the national parks from the lake
You can spend a day discovering Finnish nature, birdwatching and spotting animals on the shore – in the evening you can see a couple of swans quietly drifting together, or a bull moose swimming out across the lake.
With a Houseboat you can easily travel along the lakes to Nature Parks along the shore. Lake Päijänne can take you to the Päijänne Nature Park in Padasjoki or to Mämminiemi’s recreational area. Your holiday route can also be planned with Finnish historical sites in mind.
