Other routes take you to the iconic Finnish forest landscape to the trails of Himos mountain. We assure, that you will find suitable trails for your spirit, physical condition, equipment and time table.

Jämsä town is only 7 kilometers away, so going shopping or just sightseeing is quite easy with a bicycle. The town of Jämsänkoski is located about 14 kilometers from Himos, through Jämsä, so it’s possible to see two places in one day by bicycle. Attractions in easy biking distance are for example Witikkalan kartano (about 7 km), Felt factory Lahtiset (15 km) or Hallinportti Aviation Museum (30 km)

Himos and the Jämsänniemi cape are not huge in size, so you can easily just bike around. If you want to check out possible routes, here are some opinions. With eFatbikes you can also cycle in forests, the wide hiking trails of Northern Himos or the more challenging forest trails of Paljakka.
Ask for your copy of the printed map from the Himos Center reception!
