Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Leivonmaki National Park and Oravivuori Triangulation Tower. Take a break from the city and head to Nyrolan luontopolku and Himos Ski Resort. Change things up with these side-trips from Jyvaskyla: Art Center Haihatus (in Joutsa), Petajavesi Old Church (in Petajavesi) and Keuruu (Old Church of Keuruu & Church of Keuruu). On the 11th (Thu), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Laajis. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and design of University of Jyvaskyla, tour the pleasant surroundings at Maki-Matin perhepuisto, go for a stroll along the water at Jyvaskylan satama, and take in the views from Karkisten Silta.
