Päijät-Häme is the gateway to the Finnish lake district. The Vesijärvi and Päijänne lakes teem with fish and the unspoiled nature thick with berries and mushrooms form part of the identity of the region and add their distinctive flavours to the local food. The Vellamomenu chefs use immaculate ingredients from the local fields, pastures, forests and waterways.

Päijät-Häme has something for everyone, offering a variety of high-quality entertainment including concerts at the Sibelius Hall, musicals at Lahti City Theatre, the sheer excitement of world class sports events, and of course plenty of tasty local delicacies. The Vellamomenu is named after a buxom woman who looks rather like the mermaid pictured in the Päijät-Häme coat of arms.
