Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    My friends and I spent a couple of hours on an ATV safari and we drove up and down the slopes of Messilä and went over bumpy terrain. The trip was funny and exciting and service was friendly. I recommend this experience, you can go even if you haven't driven an ATV before, the owner gives a good (and very funny) guidance on how to use the vehicle. He also rides with the group and always helps when needed. I would go again :)

    Lanupuisto is a great park with wide roads to walk on and to enjoy the peaceful forests and Lanu's artwork. The stories behind the statues are in both English and Finnish, which our international friends were happy to discover.

    Enonsaari is a beautiful island and an outdoor recreation area which belongs to Salpausselkä UNESCO Global Geopark. The area of the nature reserve on the island is 15 hectares. There are two nature trails there (0.4 kilometers and 1.8 kilometers). You may see 60 bird species and beautiful plants. There are also a shallow sandy beach, a beach volley court, a campfire site, a lean-to shelter, a lakeside sauna (often free without any admission fee on Tuesdays) and a cafe on the island. Soup lunch is available in the cafe (closed on Mondays). The island is a marvelous picnic place, too.

    Boat transfers to Enonsaari are available from Lahti Harbor (30 minutes) and Messilä (10 minutes). Transfers are operated by Lahtis Lines (Tiirismaan Laivat). Departures from Lahti Harbor to Enonsaari are at 10 AM, 12 noon, 3 PM and 5 PM from Tuesday to Sunday (on Fridays and on Saturdays also at 6.45 PM). Departures from Messilä (Hollola) are at 11 AM, 1 PM, 4 PM and 6 PM from Tuesday to Sunday (on Fridays and on Saturdays also at 7.40 PM) in 2023. Remember to check timetables and possible changes. The price from Lahti to Enonsaari and back is 20 euros (children under 12 years 10 euros and a family ticket for 2 adults and 2 children 40 euros). From Messilä to Enonsaari and back the price is 15 euros (children 7.5 euros and a family ticket 30 euros). It is also possible to rent a kayak from Vesisamoilijat in Kahvisaari and go to Enonsaari by kayak but you have to be familiar with kayaking.

    Besides, it also possible to stay overnight on Enonsaari Island. I didn't do that but I heard that they have small cottages and a historical villa available. A campsite of a tent costs 20 euros for the first night and after that 10 euros per night (including a possibility to use a shower and a toilet). Contact them by e-mail and you get more details and you can book your accommodation.

    Enonsaari is the true summer paradise of Lahti!

    Fellman Park was built on the former lands of Fellman Manor in the 1950s. It covers an area of five hectares. The major part is as a lawn. There is a pond with fountains in the middle of the park.

    The park is also called Fellman Blood Field. As the Finnish Civil War reached its end in 1918 the field was kept as a prison camp for the Red Guard. 20000 male prisoners and thousands of women and children were held captive.

    In 1978, sixty years after the end of the Civil War, the Red Captive monument by sculptor Erkki Kannasto was erected in the park.

    Häränsilmä is a small kettle lake, which has been a nature preserve since 1983. The kettle lake is a relic of the last Ice Age. It is situated only 1.5 kilometres from the market square. So it is easy to walk there. There are beautiful walking and jogging paths (cross-country skiing tracks in winter) around the kettle lake, too.
