Jyväskylä keeps you on the move

kuva: Tero Takalo-Eskola

Jyväskylä is city really big on sport and physical recreation which challenges you to get moving – easily, enjoyably and in a whole variety of ways. In the city just about everything is within walking distance or a short bike ride and the opportunities for everyday physical recreation are first class – whether you’re a fan of fresh air or prefer getting some exercise indoors. That feeling of well-being can be topped off at a local spa – either in a warm jacuzzi or enjoying one of the many pampering treatments on offer.


Sporting challenges are now up and running!

Visit Jyväskylä challenges you to exceed yourself from a sporting point of view and get moving at Jyväskylä’s fabulous recreational locations. Take a look at the challenges below and choose the one that suits you best, or why not try all? Perform the challenge in your own manner and with the people of your choice, take a photo or video of what goes on, upload it to Instagram using the hashtag #jklmoving and take part in the competition. The closing date for the competition is 30.11.2017.
Read competition rules here.

The best entries will receive a prize! Prizes in the form of a 100 euro gift voucher (recreational activities or pampering in the Jyväskylä Region) will be awarded to the five coolest or funniest entries. The Instagram user names of the winners will be published on this page in December 2017. Winners will also be informed personally by commenting their video/photo on Instagram.

The winners of the summer 2016 sporting challenges have been chosen and the winners have been notified personally.
