Leivonmäki National Park - Cottages and Vacation Rentals
Leivonmäki National Park is a real mini powerhouse of nature in Central Finland: the precious Haapasuo mire, handsome eskers, the foaming Rutakoski rapids and diverse lakesides offer something for everyone. And all this just 50 kilometres from the busy city of Jyväskylä. Easy terrain and well-marked trails make the Leivonmäki National Park an ideal hiking destination for the whole family. You can canoe on Lake Rutajärvi and some trails are suitable for mountain biking. The best part of either a day or overnight outing is a picnic meal enjoyed by a blazing campfire. By Lake Harjujärvi, there is an accessible campfire shelter and toilet, and a trail that is also suitable for wheelchair users. In winter, Leivonmäki National Park offers an ideal setting for snowshoeing or cross country skiing on forest skis. Snow conditions permitting, the municipality of Joutsa maintains a ski trail in the southern part of the park.
