Surrounding the center are forests and nature trails, parks, schools, sport grounds and the villas and small houses which make Kauniainen the nice garden town it is today.
Keitele
Keitele is easy to get to as it lies on the popular tourist route, the Blue Highway. This highway (KT 77) begins in Norway, on the Atlantic coast, and runs via Keitele and Pielavesi right the way across to the Karelian Republic. You can now travel to Keitele by boat, as well, following the completion of the Keitele Canal. Opened in 1993, the canal links Kansallisvesi with the Päijänne waterway. And yachtsmen sailing into Keitele can literally cast anchor right in the centre of the village. There are not even many cottages in this area. Nilakka ranks among the top 20 Finnish lakes in size and is a great favourite with fishermen. The most common fish are pikeperch, whitefish, pike and perch. It will not therefore come as any surprise to find plenty of fish on the Keitele menu. Keitele offers you typical Finnish scenery with imposing ridges.

Our historical and traditional sights, shopping centre Zeppelin and recreational swimming pool, Zimmari guarantee an unforgettable experience in our beautiful municipality. The two most interesting tourist sights in Kempele are churches. An old wooden church from the 1600's, is one of the oldest churches in Finland and a new modern church from the 1990's which again is one of Finland's most modern churches. Both churches are built on the same hill and thereby create a unique entity. When the new church was planned, the old church and its graveyard were given considerable thought. Kempele Museum of Local History and Culture is located near the business centre on Kirkkotie-road. Its history begins in 1733 when a royal commander's official residence, "Hovila" was built on the site. This site was owned, after many eventful spells by Aappo Matturi until the municipality bought it and its buildings in 1975. The museum was opened in 1980. It is open from June to August.

Everything here is conveniently close at hand, so if you wish you can easily dash from one place to another by bike. We have space enough for a centre that forms a nucleus reminiscent of larger towns, yet still have verdant parks and residential areas with lush gardens and paths. Kerava has gained international recognition for the layout of its centre, the pedestrian shopping street, the pedestrian-cycle path network, as well as for the floral arrangements in its parks.

In the beginning of July, the amount of people in Kiikoinen grows threefold for one weekend, as folklore fans from all over Finland gather for the regional Folklore Festival "Purpurijuhlat". It is a festival for the wholw family. As its main theme the Festival presents folk music and folk dance performances based on the Western-Finnish peasant and crofter tradition. It has been the aim of the local organizers to keep the fancy fair feeling away from the festival, so if you want to experience something original, come to the "Purpurijuhlat"! The name "purpuri" stands for a local wedding and festive dance from the 18th century. Other activities: hiking, skiing, volleyball, archery and outdoor winter swimming.
Kisko
The municipality of Kisko, very scenic and rich in lakes, is one of the twelve municipalities in Salo area which is in Varsinais-Suomi region in the south west of Finland, one of the regions in the Western Administrative District.

Others seasons are as attractive and beautiful as winter but not yet so popular. In summer hiking, canoeing and fishing are among the activities tourists like. Autumn is a short season in Lapland but the the bright colours of the forests and mountains make it a spectacular experience.

The winners of qualifying singing competitions around the country meet to see who is the best young talent in Finnish popular music. If you want to try becoming a singer yourself you can take singing lessons from a Finnish maestro during the festival.
Kokemäki
If you wish to swallow the scenery in one gulp, drive along the uneventful main roads pass Kokemäki. But if you have the eyes, heart and a moment of your time to give to the beautiful nature and the rustic peasant culture of the region, an abundant treasure chest of ancient history and magnificent landscapes opens up before your eyes. Passers-by may wonder, why Kokemäki is called the town of water. Take a look at the map! The proudly running Kokemäki River flows through the town landscape. Before power stations were built, roared dozens of rapids among the forests and fields. The bright Kauvatsanjoki River brings waters from the wilderness. Largest of the lakes is Lake Sääksjärvi formed in a meteor crash, impressive in all seasons of the year. The reed-covered Lake Puurijärvi is part of the Isosuo—Puurijärvi National Park. Its rich birdlife with species from swans and eagles to storks and osprays attracks yearly tens of thousands of nature enthusiasts to the site.
Kokkola
Kokkola is a classical small town on the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia. A walking tour in the heart of the town takes you back in history. Many museums wish you welcome to acquaint yourself with their exhibitions. Cruises to the beautiful but barren archipelago of Kokkola give a splendid opportunity for a landlubber to discover the rugged charm of the costal islands of western Finland.  Tankar, the lighthouse island outside Kokkola invites you to an unforgetable adventure in the Gulf of Bothnia. This islet, risen from the sea, has worked as a base for fishermen and sealhunters for centuries. Even today there are some old cottages left from the very old, idyllic settlement. The geographical location of the island in the outer archipelago gives a special mark on its nature. The sensitive and unique landscape is composed of the contrast of barren rocky shores and lush groves. Every plant, animal, stone and rock tells you its own story of the eventful past of the island.
Kolari
Kolari is a municipality of 4000 active inhabitants and it offers a variety of services to everyone. Kolari is known as a growing tourist attraction because of our international skiing centre Ylläs.

You can go trekking, hiking and cross-country skiing in our huge and magnificent forests or downhill skiing on the slopes of Ylläs and enjoy the beautiful wilderness view. If you are fond of fishing or canoeing you should go to Tornio-Muonio river – the border between Finland and Sweden – and see if you can catch your own salmon! In Kolari you can really experience the atmosphere of Lapland.
Konnevesi
The beauty of Kontiolahti's landscapes, constantly changing and highly varied, are attributable to the transitional nature of the area. Here it is that Finnish Lakeland changes into the Karelian fell country. The northernmost reaches of Kontiolahti touch the Koli National Park and its fell landscapes, while the southernmost reaches of Kontiolahti are dominated by the magnificent water systems of Lake Höytiäinen and the River Pielinen.Most of the southernmost basin of the vast Lake Höytiäinen water system is in Kontiolahti. Recreational fishermen enjoy the lake's wide variety of fish. Boaters love to visit the lake's beautiful islands. Lake Höytiäinen has no water transit connections leaving the lake to live its own peaceful life. The open water islands are protected from development by Finland's Lakeshore Protection Act. This guarantees that there will be no construction and they will remain the valued nature areas they are today.Kontiolahti is not for the idle!
