The beautiful rural town of Pälkäne is located approximately 30 minutes east of Tampere and 90 minutes north of Helsinki. Here the views are dominated by large lakes, farms and woodlands. The vibrant landscape is full of lovely villages and lakeside cottages. During the summer you can relax and enjoy the welcoming lake beaches and country walks. Then marvel at the frozen brilliance of the countryside around you during winter, while cross-country skiing across the same frozen lakes.
