Lake Päijänne Swim Tour

Swim outdoors, relax and sleep well on our holiday. The vast pristine waters of Päijänne National Park are a treasure for swimmers and outdoor lovers. Water in Lake Päijänne is so clean that you can drink it! A chain of islands in Lake Päijänne is formed by an esker ridge that dates back to the Ice Age. Accommodation in Villa Takila, a two-apartment holiday cottage, offers luxury, style and great ambience for your living and holidaying needs.
