Jyvaskyla ©
Jyväskylä is a city and municipality in Finland and in the western part of the Finnish Lakeland. Visiting Himos Ski Resort and Leivonmaki National Park will get you outdoors. Step out of Jyvaskyla with an excursion to Petajavesi Old Church in Petajavesi--about 34 minutes away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at The Alvar Aalto Museum, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, get interesting insight from Laajis, and get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum of Central Finland.

To find photos and tourist information, refer to the Jyvaskyla trip planner.

Manchester, UK to Jyvaskyla is an approximately 13.5- hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Manchester to Jyvaskyla due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Manchester in January, expect Jyvaskyla to be colder, temps between -7°C and -14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) to allow time to travel to Saarijarvi.
