As its name indicates, Central Finland is a cross-section of all of Finland in the middle of the country. Its best offerings include the numerous lakes, the undulating landscape, the waters and rapids rich in fish, the farmhouses and lakeshore cottages and the cruises on Päijänne, Keitele and Keurusselkä. There are comfortable hiking trails in the many national parks of the area. In the Jämsä region, holidays are arranged throughout the year. Himos is a favourite destination for winter holidays, but it is full of events and musical offerings in the summer too. The travel destinations in Keuruu pay attention to local traditions. The Saarijärvi and Viitasaari regions are known for their beautiful nature and rapids.
