About this destination

Kuhmo, a town of some 8 000 inhabitants, lies by a beautiful waterway. The River Pajakkajoki offers a natural treat with its rapids and pathways in the very centre of the town. Kuhmo is a pioneer both in using renewable energy and timber construction development. The strengths of Kuhmo lie in timber, the boreal wilderness, and culture. The appeal of the wilderness and the ample variety of culture are steady values of our town. The rich nature with a vast forest tract, lakes, and rapids offer unique possibilities for refreshment through various kinds of active exercise, fishing, and hunting. The main attractions of tourism in Kuhmo are based on these activities.
