Mother’s Day in the Jyväskylä Region

Soon we celebrate mothers and grandmothers in the sunny Jyväskylä Region. Whether your family’s Mother’s Day includes a traditional lunch, some outdoor activities or pampering at a spa, mothers are the stars of the upcoming celebration. Get inspired by the following tips, which help to make this Mother’s Day a one to remember!

1. To a mom, who enjoys food

Mother’s Day marks the beginning of summer and conveniently, the restaurants and cafes have just reopened. What could make a mother happier, than a traditional Mother’s Day lunch? In Jyväskylä, lunch is served in Taulun Kartano’s stunning setting. The Mother’s Day lunch in Taulun Kartano is organized in two different settings. If the weather conditions are favourable, lunch can be enjoyed outside as well.

2. To a mom, who likes to move

The Jyväskylä Region has been bathing in sunshine recently – what could be a more relaxing way to spend the day than a nice stroll in a nature setting? The Jyväskylä harbour in Lutakko is a stunning place for a walk or for photography. It is a great location to enjoy the warmth of the sun – and perhaps refresh oneself with ice cream from Harbour Café?

The four national parks of Jyväskylä Region are also a great idea for a relaxing walk. For a brisker taste, activities can be found from Leivonmäki National Park, where Versona can guide you and your mom to biking on a fatbike – among other activities. Fatbikes and other fun activities can be found from the youth center Piispala as well. Not to mention HimosLomat!
