Sporting Events

Sports Destination created by water

The City of Lahti was built at the intersection of the Salpausselkä ridge and Lake Vesijärvi, where nature and the urban environment merge. The landscape modified by the Ice Age and shaped by water invites us to climb the ridges and return down to the lake shores. It’s hard to stay still.

Sports destination created by water was born.

Finland as Your next Destination

Finns are experienced event organisers, and all services are first class; in a recent FCB survey, nine out of ten congress attendees found the safety of Finnish host cities to be either good or very good. As a bonus, Finnish friendliness received special thanks.


Pure Finnish nature is a part of our soul.

Where else in the world you can swim in a lake with water almost pure enough to drink less than one kilometre from City Hall and the Market Square? And whenever you hike on Lahti’s high ridges or ski safely during wintertime on a frozen lake, you’ll see that this combination of city and nature is something very special. In Lahti, the city is in your front yard, and nature in your backyard!
