The city of sport and culture

Welcome to Lahti!

There are about 100 000 inhabitants Lahti and the location is about 100 kilometers (one hour's drive) from Helsinki.

The land area is 135 square kilometers and the water area is 20 square kilometers. About 11,000 years ago the Ice Age moulded the Salpausselkä Ridge as the gate of the Finnish lake district. Lahti is situated on this Salpausselkä Ridge and this guarantees a very beautiful scenery.

This page is under construction. So far only nine must see activities are listed. More details coming "soon"...
