Activities for Members of the Family

 

While you are fishing, we can organise other pleasant activities for members of your family, for example physical and cultural activities, shopping or even easy fishing in nearby lakes from the shore or by using boats.

 

In our area there are for example tennis and badminton courts, beaches, boat harbour, children’s playground, huts for barbequing and open fire areas for sausage grilling. Along the shoreline paths we have prepared small shore fishing spots. The rowing boats are free of charge for the use of our guests.

 

In the centre of Keitele you will find a sports ground, ice hockey rink and ski treks. Sporting equipment is available for hire from us to all our guests.

 

Should you so wish, we can organise an evening of ‘After Fishing’ programme at the end of your day’s fishing.

 

Below you will find more tips for your full enjoyment.

The Highest Waterfall in Finland – Korkeakoski

 

- Korkeakoski is the highest free-flowing rapid found in Finland and is a popular tourist destination. It emerged after the ice age, when water found its way through a mountain crack formed over millions of years ago.

- It is located on Route 77 along the borders of Pielajavesi and Maaninka, about 40 km away. Korkeakoski gains its waters from small lakes and ends up at the steep rock face of Maaninka Lake. The height of Korkeakoski Waterfall is 36 m 40 cm.

- Korkeakoski is located on a nature conservation area, which was granted its conservation status in 1947. At present the total conservation area covers 35 ha.  The area is owned by Kuopion Luonnon Ystäväin Yhdistys (Association of Friends of Kuopio Nature) - KLYY and Maaninka rural district.

Bird Lakes

 

Hetejärvi Lake is a peaceful, well-equipped, high-quality bird lake in the wilderness far away in the Savo district and the remote borders of Western Finland.

On the lake at the beginning of May you can encounter a rich spectrum of waterfowl, such as geese, black-headed and little gull colonies, waders, cranes and birds of prey.

Perhaps the most interesting of nesting birds is the horned Slavonian grebe with about 20 pairs found annually, and also cranes. Of the birds of prey we can guarantee you will see a brown harrier and in August a Falco Subbuteo or hobby.

 

The best sightings: white winged black tern, gadwall, red-necked phalarope. See more on our detailed guided tour to the birdlake.
