Finland’s most beautiful landscape route leads from Vääksy via Pulkkilanharju and Sysmä to Korpilahti. The route follows the eastern side of Lake Päijänne and showcases the most picturesque Finnish lakeland and countryside.

The Pulkkilanharju section of the route belongs to the Päijänne National Park. There the road goes on a narrow esker surrounded by open, pristine lake areas on both sides. Pulkkilanharju is also the starting point of the Päijänne Tunnel that distributes drinking water to more than one million Finns living in the Greater Helsinki Area.

You can take a walk on the Pulkkilanharju Nature Trail (4.4 km, easy) starting from the Karisalmi bridge. The trail offers lovely lake views and esker terrain shaped by the Ice Age!
