The easiest way to visit Päijänne National Park
Jul 2016 • Family
This trail begins under the bridge of Karisalmi, on the ridge (or the isker) of Pulkkilanharju. You get here by the road 314 from Vääksy (Asikkala) or Sysmä by car, by bus or by bike. You can leave your car on the rest stop next to the bridge. There are also a small summer cafeteria (or actually a kiosk) and a dry toilet there.

The nature trail is a bit over 2 kilometers and it is a circle trail. If you want to walk more you can go on 2.4 kilometers more. So the total length of the marked trail is about 4.4 kilometers and it takes about an hour.

You will easily see very beautiful lake and ridge views here. You don't even need hiking shoes or rubber boots.

Not very far from Helsinki area, Tampere or Lahti is Pulkkilan harju.
Rent a bike and cycle from Asikkala to Pulkkilan harju.
There is a bicycle bath from Vääksy to the Pulkkilan harju. It's also nice trip with motocycle or car.
Pulkkilan harju is a concervation area, and it's near Päijänne. Pick up berries, swim and just enjoy hiking in the Finnish nature. Have Fun!

Outdoor activity for fun
May 2015 • Family
Pulkkilanharju is formed by glacial period. It is fun and lovely place to those who want some outdoor activities quite easily. You can trek or wander in the national park or ride a bicycle in a beutiful scenery. There is a good bicycle path from Vääksy through Pulkkilanharju to the village of Kalkkinen and on the road you see and cross two bridges, Karisalmi and Käkisalmi. The restaurant Reimari is open in the summertime offering for example salmon soup, pizzas, hamburgers and drinks.
