High on the hill, take the elevator to the top and enjoy the panoramic views from the observation deck of Lahti’s tallest ski jumping tower – the historic site of multiple Nordic Championships and World Cup events in Salpausselkä UNESCO geopark.
Open daily in the summer (and the rest of the year by reservation), the observation deck overlooks Lahti Sport Center with its open air swimming pool, the city of Lahti, Lake Vesijärvi and the abundant nature of the region. During the summer, you can also make a round trip on the ski-lift just like the jumpers do.
Yes, ski jumpers also train in the summer – you may get lucky and see a jumper taking flight!
The viewing deck is open to the public daily from June 1 – August 31st with the exception of the Finnish Midsummer holiday. Beyond the summer, the deck can only be visited with a reservation for your private group.
