Hiking and bike rental

There are couple of hiking routes in Himos where you can just go and wander about. The green 4 km route is a moderate walking/Nordic walking/mountain biking route that runs via the lean-to-shelter at the bottom of North-Western Himos.

The 8 km route marked with the blue sings is more challenging trip thanks to the steep height differences. 3 –Peaks trail is primarily a hiking trail but one with the sufficient fitness level can bicycle up the hill. On this trail some spots demand getting off the bike. The parking lot of the Western slopes is the beginning point of the paths. Those who are able to read the map the cape Jämsänniemi offers an endless selection of enticing routes to bicycle and hike.
The bikes are rented with locks so you can ride the cycle paths all the way down town Jämsä or even Jämsänkoski to visit these quaint towns.
