In summer, the Jyväskylä harbour transforms into a point of recreation for the city dwellers of all ages. The harbour, located in the immediate vicinity of the city centre and the Travel Centre attracts people to enjoy sunny summer days, fun activities and varied treats to eat.
The Jyväskylä Harbour, the northernmost passenger harbour on Lake Päijänne, is the starting point for several different cruises. From Jyväskylä you can comfortably sail to Lahti, Jämsä, Suolahti, Laukaa and Viitasaari, for example. A cruise is an excellent way of experiencing the scenery on Lake Päijänne while enjoying the delicious buffets on the cruise boats.
You can also take off from the harbour on a floating sauna. In between sauna baths, it is fun to dip into the refreshing lake water to cool off. Or enjoy the lake sceneries by renting a Houseboat, which is sure to be a memorable experience! If you are looking for excitement, you can hop aboard a water jet or test the ferocious-looking flyboards.
A stone’s throw from the harbour is unique opportunity to race along the water surface on a wakeboard or rent SUP boards.
In the harbour, there are activities for every taste! The Rantaraitti recreational route in Jyväskylä is the biggest outdoor gym in Finland. The route takes you round the Jyväsjärvi lake. The 13 kilometre route provides changing landscapes in different neighbourhoods in Jyväskylä.
The large green space in the harbour offers a good ground for cosy lounging and having picnics. In addition to your picnic, you can indulge your taste buds at many restaurants in the area.
The Lutakko Square located by the harbour is famous for music. The range of events and festivals on the Lutakko Square is wide, from the large Rally Finland and Suomipop to smaller events.
The Jyväskylä Lutakko Harbour offers a lot to do even in winter.
Visiting craft can take on fuel and drinking water – as well as empty their septic tank and bilge – at the service jetty.
