Mini holiday in Karkkila

A mini holiday in Karkkila is full of sweet treats!
It's only an hour's drive from the capital and you can get away from it all in the peace and quiet of the Tehtaan Hotel and Högfors Ruuk.
Lower Emali and the Factory Hotel and its surroundings are already a magnificent sight. In Ala-Emali you will find vintage shops, organic cosmetics, an art workshop, the popular Uunisauna, the Sola-Sal for yoga and relaxation and the Kino Laika with its bars full of quality films and good drinks.
The Factory Hotel is a great place to unwind from the day's activities and stay overnight or dine in a comfortable atmosphere amidst the eventful surroundings of Ruukki. All the hotel buildings have a handy kitchenette and guests can use loaner bicycles to explore the surrounding area.
In Karkkila you will find a wonderful rapids trail with huts where you can grill sausages. Liesjärvi National Park with its great trails is only a 25-minute drive from Karkkila.
