Tampere is known as the birthplace of industry, with many large companies still retaining factories and headquarters in the city. This was thanks to the lakes and waterways surrounding the city – there’s more than 200 throughout the Tampere region.

These lakes are still a big part of Tampere’s identity today, and a large draw for tourists. Canoeing is especially popular due to the hundreds of kilometers of paddling routes and the wide range of different waters. Other popular activities are swimming, lake cruises, sailboarding, scuba diving, Nordic skating, ice fishing, and ice swimming. These are some of the most beautiful lakes in Tampere where you can take in the views and enjoy these activities:
