Internationally known Lahti Sports Centre is the heart of the ski games. In addition to being a world-renowned arena for winter events, the Lahti Sports Centre is one of the town’s most fascinating tourist attractions for the whole family.

In summer, you can enjoy the wonderful view from the observation deck at the top of the Lahti Ski Jump tower. The out-run of the ski jumping hill serves as a pleasant outdoor swimming pool with separate pools for adults and children. And when hunger hits, you’ll find a nice café and a restaurant with a view over the whole Sports Centre in the museum building.

The hiking trails and skiing tracks in Salpausselkä, some of which go all the way to Messilä Ski Centre, also start from the Sports Centre. And what’s more, the services of the Sports Centre are only 10 minutes away on foot from the centre of Lahti.

What makes the Sports Centre area so well suitable for sports is its geology: the unique, diverse landscape of ridges, kettle holes, steep slopes and raised beaches. The Sports Centre is one of the most significant geosites within the Salpausselkä UNESCO Global Geopark.
