  • 1 Camping Sysmä, Huitilantie 3, +358 44 974 9378, . Bicycles, rowing boats (also motorized), kayaks, canoes and SUP boards for rent.
  • 2 Kammiovuori, Nutturintie 29 (drive 24 km along road 612 towards Luhanka, turn right to Vintturintie for 2 km, turn left to Nutturintie and continue 1 km to the parking). The highest point of eastern Tavastia, with a point on the Struve Geodetic Arc. A 4-km marked trail leads to the hilltop (a 120 m ascend) from the parking via a lean-to shelter (with outhouse toilet, benches, table and woodshed; no campfires during wildlife warnings). Close to the top the trail forks to form a circle path. The cave Hiskiaanluola just before the peak is said to have been inhabited by a hermit in the early 20th century. Other sights by the trail are the 7-m glacial erratic Sysmän Linta, the big anthills, the varying landscapes and the view from the peak. The footpath is steep and stony, but popular also among families (mind unfenced drops!).





  • 1 Hotel Restaurant Uoti (Hotelli-Ravintola Uoti), Keskustie 1, +358 3 876250.
