Salpausselkä Ridge, formed by the Ice Age offers many surprises to the traveler in Lahti Sports Centre. Join our guided hiking trip and you'll love it. You can easily reach the starting point of the excursion on foot from the city center or the Travel Centre.

We start our walking tour from the gate of Lahti Sports Centre. On our way we will see many marks of Ice age, like Häränsilmä pond, “suppa” kettle holes, and of course the most famous landmark Salpauselkä ridge, which stopped the meltwaters of the Ice age and created the Finnish Lakeland. At the end of the trip we will relax in wooden lean-to and have a warm drink.
