#1 Explore the Lakeland on a houseboat

#3 Countryside living at its best
For the past few years rural tourism has become a trend. If you wish to escape from the hustle and bustle of cities, go back to the roots (in its literal meaning), come to the countryside in Central Finland, where you will find several farms to stay at. Taipale Farm in Petäjävesi is a great example of a place where you can enjoy a pleasant stay and buy products produced at the farm.
#4 Hotel Yöpuu
To say the least this is a hotel unlike any other. To elaborate the idea ever more, each room in the Hotel Yöpuu has a distinct interior design, so there are no two rooms alike. With the idea of delivering the best of the best hotel and dining experience, this hotel and its restaurant Pöllöwaari have received a number of prestigious awards on national and international levels.
# Extreme and history combined
Some might wish to stay at a place with a historic appeal while the others would prefer a location where it is possible to experience some fun activities such as dog sledging in winter or rafting in summer. If you want to combine the two of the options, come to Varjola Holiday Centre for a weekend or a longer period of time. With dozens of extreme activities and a beautiful historic manor, this holiday centre gains high scores in all the categories.
