At Kuusijärvi you can bath in old fashioned sauna and swim in a small lake. There are two different types of saunas you can choose - one heated with electricity (separate for women and men) and the other two heated with wood which are called smoked saunas (they are black inside and are mixed with both women and men). One... More

This is where a lot of the city areas triathlon fanatics come to train starting early spring when water is only 10-12 degrees. It's a good spot because most triathlons in Finland are organized by lakes, there are no waves and it's fairly shallow and smooth bottom. Also switches are easy to train here with a big parking lot and... More

This small lake is in summer absolutely crowded, since it's the only one in East Vantaa. The area is nice for hiking, running, and for.ex. volleyball. Sun bathing and going to sauna are the main reason to visit in summer. In winter ice swimming and sauna are the best in Kuusijärvi.

Kuusijärvi is a hugely popular place among people who live in the nearby areas. When it's warm and sunny this place gets crowded with all types of people; families, youngsters, elderly.. It's also a popular spot to crab a coffee or an ice-cream when enjoying a day motorcyckling around. There are saunas, conference rooms, a beach, a refreshing lake, basketball... More

You want to know what Finland is all about? Here it is all. Sauna, lake and sausage. Come here and swim in a lake. It's free. But go little more Finnish and spend little money to go to sauna first or go more Finnish and go to smoke sauna. Then after multiple times going between lake and sauna, go to... More

I used to go to swim here every day during the summer months. The water is clean and the shore is kept in a good condition with facilities for sauna, grilling, walking. Also in winter it is the best spots to go ice swimming. The sauna is warmed every day and the restaurant offers lunch. I recommend it to those... More

Kuusijarvi is a small lake in north-east corner of Vantaa. There is a restaurant where one can buy refreshments. On the beach, which is very crowded in heat, there are not so many activities to do, but sunbathing and swimming of course. The lake is quite small,actualliy it is a pond.. A narrow road goes around it, some people like... More

There is a very good smoke sauna. Actually there are three saunas; two small ones and one big. It's not too expensive. At winter time - when they are heated daily - also there is an open place in the lake to cool oneself. Pretty good experience.

We had a great day at Kuusijarvi. We went there in the morning snd hiked around the lake. The wood saunas are ready by 1pm and we used both the electric snd wood fired saunas. The experience was great followed by the opportunity to swim in the lake which was at freezing point! Not fir the faint hearted! The Finns... More
