Laukaa is a municipality of Finland.It is located in the province of Western Finland, next to Jyväskylä and is part of the Central Finland region. Step out of the city life by going to Pyha-Hakki National Park and Laajis. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Laukaa: Panda Factory Outlet (in Vaajakoski) and Jyvaskyla (The Craft Museum of Finland, Room Escape Games, & more). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Finnish Air Force Museum and get in on the family fun at Nokkakivi Amusement Park.

To find ratings, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, you can read our Laukaa planning site .

Houston, USA to Laukaa is an approximately 26-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time to Eastern European Time is 8 hours. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Houston in January, with highs in Laukaa at 20°F and lows at 10°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Jamsa.
