What are we going to do

On a walking tour of Tahko, you will see the area’s varied natural landscapes and learn about Tahko’s story. You will hear how a small rural village developed into one of Finland's most significant year-round tourist centers, and find out how Tahko got its name. During the walking tour you will also encounter Tahko's mammoths in the most surprising places possible.

The course of events:
-The hiking trip starts in the center of Tahko at the foot of Myllykivi, from where we head through Tahkolahti to the longest stairs in Finland leading to the top of Tahko. After ascending the 1054 steps and 800 meters above Tahko, the vast scenery of Lake Finland over Lake Syväri opens up in front of us. Throughout the journey we hear stories related to Tahko's history, present and future.
-We continue our journey on the ridge of the slope, sometimes in the middle of the forest, sometimes admiring the lake scenery. At the viewpoint, we will enjoy the refreshing spring water of Tahko.
-The hike culminates in the scenery of the Mäkiauto gorge, where we walk along long trees and stairs. On the way back we fold along the slope via a pontoon bridge back to the starting point.

Round length:
During the 2.5-hour tour, we walk about 4 km.
We can also walk along the plain without going up the stairs of Tahko. In this case, the duration of the round is about 1.5 hours.

Group price 135 € incl. VAT.
For a smaller group 35 € / person incl. VAT.
