Saarijarvi

— 7 nights
Saarijärvi is a town and municipality of Finland. Venture out of the city with trips to Viitasaari (Sahis Aki resort & Nestori) and Karstula (Kirkkovuori Nature Observation Tower & Car Museum Wanhat Wehkeet). Spend the 3rd (Tue) exploring nature at Pyha-Hakki National Park. It doesn't end there: get great views at Julmat Lammit.

To find other places to visit, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, use the Saarijarvi day trip site.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Saarijarvi is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Saarijarvi. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Amsterdam in August, with highs in Saarijarvi at 22°C and lows at 10°C. On the 8th (Sun), you're off to Jyvaskyla.
