For a fun day out, try Iisalmi’s circular cycle route around Lake Paloisjärvi. If you’re looking for action, Paloisvuori’s mountain bike routes and the trails around Koljonvirta are for you. To enjoy a more rural atmosphere, ride your bike around Lake Haapajärvi. Contact Haapaniemi Travel for route tips, packed lunches and accommodation. If you’re planning a longer rural excursion, your cycle route will pass the Spa Hotel Runni and the Blue Pearl.
Pick up your cycle route map at the visitor information centre.
