Honkalintu - Canoeing Lake Pitkäjärvi in ​​Nuuksio 6 km from south to north


Feel the enchantment of Nuuksio's Pitkäjärvi lake and the timeless sense of peace on a glacial shaped lake.
The glacial wedges and crests of the Ice Age have left their deep plots on the cliffs of Pitkäjärvi, and the scenery leads the canoeist's mind to a distant past.
