Tour skating

The whole Lake Päijänne is available for tour skating in the early winter before the heavy snowfall or in the early spring after most of the snow has melted. However, remember to be cautious and beware of the thin ice. Have your ice picks with you and never go on a long skating trip alone.

Astrography

Evo region is a good place to photograph the night sky, as Evo has little or no light pollution at all.
