Varjola Holiday Centre is a unique place where traditions and extreme activities create a special atmosphere. Varjola is located in 26 km from Jyväskylä on one of the most picturesque spots in the region – by the Kuusankoski rapids.

The history of the place dates back to 1880. Once you enter the guesthouse, you get to see what a traditional Finnish family house would look like some 50 years ago. To add to this sense of history and the past, try one of the delicious dishes at the Barn Restaurant or get yourself a sweet treat at the Bistro Sylvi.

Varjola is an all year round resort and is very popular for its diverse programmes, which include such extreme activities as rafting, ATV-safaris, off road safaris and rally adventures. If you prefer a much more relaxed way of spending a day outdoors, join a hiking tour or try fishing in rapids with a professional guide.

To enjoy your stay in Central Finland to the fullest rent one of the luxurious villas and test one of the saunas at Varjola.
