many things to see and do in and around the hotel, and in the
neighbouring towns and villages.
Climb the stairs of the old wooden observation tower in the hotel grounds, and you will be rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding lakes and forests. In the distance, you can even see the famous ski jumping hills in the city of Lahti!
Vääksy and the Vääksy Canal

The shallow, sloping beach at Kalmarinranta, on the shores of Lake Vesijärvi, is perfect for families with children to enjoy. There are also children's playgrounds, exercise apparatus and spaces for ball games in the wooded area by the beach.
Golf on the beach at Kalmarinranta
The sport of Disc golf (also known as Frisbee golf) is popular in Finland, and there are a number of disc golf courses in the Lahti region. The nearest one to the hotel is located at Kalmarinranta beach. Discs (frisbees) can be rented from the hotel reception.
A high-quality golf course is located right next to Hotel Tallukka at Kanavagolf. So whatever the size of your group, why not play a little golf together? There is also the possibility of having golf lessons, with instruction available in several languages. Private golf events and competitions can also be organised, including small Par 3 contests.
If golf is not your thing, how about minigolf? Kanavagolf next to the hotel also has a minigolf course available, which can be a fun activity for children and adults alike.
