Around Kalajärvi

The Around Kalajärvi route runs across beautiful countryside along gravel and tarmac roads. The route, which starts from Kalajärvi Resort, is signposted in either direction.

Located close to the centre of Peräseinäjoki, Kalajärvi Resort offers an ideal starting point for a cycle trip around the lake. The resort also offers a wide range of activities. After a cycle, you can relax in a sauna and enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake. The resort also has a restaurant, and it hosts a variety of events and concerts in the summer.

In Peräseinäjoki, you can also learn more about the region’s interesting history at the Finnish Emigrant Museum. The World of Trails Heritage Park on the shore of Alajärvi offers an introduction to the lives and experiences of Finnish emigrants in various parts of the world. The museum area’s first building, the Hakala ‘American’ House, opened to the public in the summer of 2008. At the Hakala House, visitors can learn about migration to the US and the life of Matti Hakala and his offspring. Other buildings in the area include a sugar caners’ barrack received from Queensland, Australia, as a donation; the Matti Unkuri house, a log house from Siberia, and the Knuuttila house from Canada.
