In the 1800s, Kangasala became a popular tourist destination due to its magnificent ridge landscapes. The location between two lakes inspired painters and poets. The unique ridges right in the city center are popular outdoor trails, easily accessible on foot. Guide services are also available. How about, for example, ForestPilates?
Kangasala’s extensive and diverse marked outdoor trails with lean-tos provide excellent opportunities for both short and long hikes. There are several cycling routes with stunning views. In winter, the city maintains an extensive network of ski trails, weather permitting. Kangasala is particularly known for its horses, having the highest number per capita in Finland.
