Fatbike Mesikämmen

Get to know the wilderness around the zoo on a fatbike! There are easy trails that are under 10 kilometers long near the Ähtäri Zoo, as well as a more challenging nature trail that is a few kilometers long. Along these trails, you can find a lean-to and a Laplander’s hut, as well as hotel-level services.


Flowpark – the best way to enjoy your free time!

Flowpark is an eco-friendly adventure park where you can see if you’ve got the guts. All the adventure routes were built on living trees without harming them. You can complete a variety of tasks up to several dozen meters off the ground. These tasks include rope tracks with, for example, moving paths, rope swing jumps, swings, and zipline glides. Flowpark is for adventurers of all ages – we have fitting challenges for you, whether you are an average Joe or Jill or an experienced outdoors person.


Ähtäri Zoo Golf

Ähtäri Golf’s 18-hole golf course is situated by the beautiful Lake Moksunjärvi, and it offers plenty of challenge and variety to golfers. The so-called old part of the course and its 9 holes were built around the Moksu farm, which has a history and roots that date back to the 1500s. The new part of the course was opened in 2013, and it consists of 9 holes in the surroundings of Ähtäri’s old Mini Finland area, where you get to, for example, putt right in front of the Parliament House. The range, chipping green, and putting practice area guarantee that golfers can practice every part of their game. The club provides golfers with the right kind of relaxed ambience and good service.


Hear the Call of Ähtäri’s Cross-Country Skiing Trails

Ähtäri has a cross-country skiing trail network of around 150 kilometers, 80 km of which is prepared with a Paana PistenBully and suits both cross-country skiing styles. Lit cross-country trails of about 6 kilometers in length can be found at the Mustikkavuori sports center and another 5 kilometers at the Ähtäri tourist center. The profile of the Mustikkavuori cross-country trails is quite demanding at times, but the 5-kilometer-long trail at the tourist center is easy enough even for young children. Both cross-country trails have a lean-to along the route. The smaller village areas nearby also have good cross-country skiing trails. Alastaipale, for example, has a lit 1-kilometer-long trail.

Culture Sites

If culture is what you seek, Ähtäri has a fair share of museums and various exhibitions to offer you like the Museum of Local History, Museums of Shcools of The Past, a Downtonw Culture Route, various memorials, Pirkanpohja Art Center and a toy nostalgy exhibition.
