Recreational Destinations - Visit Pyhäjoki

Admire the beautiful plants in the arboretum, take in the rapids along Pyhäjoki and relax on the beach. Nature trails call to the forest and to the river bank. The bird-watching tower opens up the view to Parhalahti and offers countless bird species to watchers. Visit Pyhäjoki presents and guides these experiences to you.

You can use Pyhäjoki Recreational Sites Map on Google Maps. We have marked there swimming places, hiking and sports sites, places for camp fire, disc golf parks, and fishing harbours. Please, give us feedback and development suggestions via Leisure Activity Office-Form.

In Pyhäjoki, during the year 2020 is being carried out a wide Traveling Trail Project. The project covers over 200 kilometers of walking and cycling trails, as well as beaches, which will be marked and improved. Recreational Areas' buildings will be receiving renovations and new buildings and structures will be built, like wickets, campfire places, wooden sheds, dry lavatories and waste sheds. We will be announcing more information about the project on our website.
