  • Tainionvirta is Finland's southernmost salmon river. Virtaan Manor's Väentupa is an ideal accommodation for fishermen due to its location. Fishing permits are sold by Urheilu-Valonen.

  • The Tainionvirta kayaking route from Hartola to Sysmä is 40 km long, of which the river section is 24 km. The height difference of the route is 14 m. It includes six calm, safe rapids, while offering experiences of "white water". There are four checkpoints on the route, at which there are distances of about 100 meters. Tainionvirta is connected to Päijänne. Päijänne National Park offers wonderful scenery and campsites for boaters as well.

  • The prerequisites for cross-country skiing are either on the well-kept Virtaa village track built in the nearby forests of the Manor or, for example, on the lighted fitness tracks of Sysmä church village's Ohrasaaari.

  • A large conservation area has been formed in the forest area of Virtaa Manor because of its significant nature values. Hiking in the woods, picking berries and picking mushrooms are a relaxing holiday activity.

  • Tennis court available at Virtaa. Ask the host for more information.

  • Golf lovers will find the nearest golf courses in Hartola and Vääksy. Both courses are less than half an hour's drive away.

The rustle of history...

"At Virtaan Manor, the preparation of the sahti was part of the middle maid's duties. It was prepared in a sauna and most commonly sahti was made for Christmas, for Midsummer, Easter and Kinker."



Birgitta Stjernvall-Järvi: Kartanoelämää Itä-Hämeessä, 2009
