Reviewed By Jan R - Tampere, Finland

Kajaanin linna/Kajaneborg ruins are nicely visible from the shores of Kajaani river. You can also easily walk into the castle. The castle was from the 17th century and destroyed by the Russian in 1716. There is also a signboard telling you about the history of the castle.

I took a cruise on the steam boat Kouta from Kajaani to island called Ärjä. The boat is really old and fascinating, the lake view is beautiful and the island is a paradise. I couldn't imagine that kind of natural sand Beaches to exist here....MoreThanks!

Great location down town, but still a bit hard to find. Anyway, the staff was great, very helpful and friendly. Escaping was not easy, but finally we made. Apparently we "had what it takes" to escap in (slightly) less than 60 minutes.

Erkinpoloku

Reviewed By elyzolw - Vuokatti, Finland

Erkinpoloku is a great nature trail. The longest trail is 3,5km but there are also shorter versions which are 3km, 2km, 1,5km and 1km. That’s why this is a great destination to come with children also. Trail is in a pretty great shape, but it can sometimes be wet so take good shoes with you. In winter this is also a great snowshoeing trail.
