Sports and hobbies to try out in Rautjärvi.


Rautjärvi – Fit for all

Rautjärvi has good opportunities for all kinds of activities. There are many lakes and rivers to do various water activities, forests to run around in and much more. If your sport of choice is running or biking, we highly recommend you check out Museotie in Miettilä, featured in the video above. Museotie is 20 km road with a long history – it was once a main highway travelling through Rautjärvi. Now the road is a great scenic route and perfect for a bike ride.
