Häähninmäki nature trails and Häähnintupa Cottage


Häähninmäki Hill marks a historic boundary between the ancient hunting grounds in Hankasalmi and Konnevesi. The area has an extensive network of trails that are open all year round and offer fat biking, trail running and other outdoor pursuits. Häähninmäki is also home to Häähnintupa Cottage, a wilderness hut and rest stop built in 2012.

Conveniently located near the trails, it is open to all visitors, and can be used to make coffee, cook a meal and even stay the night. You can also hire the cottage for meetings, company away-days and other events. It can be easily reached from all directions.
