Adventure

The magnificent surrounding of Marttinen youth centre offers many possibilities to experience the different kinds of adventures. Marttinen is located in the middle of the Finnish nature with lakes and the forest and it's possible to enjoy of multitude of activities regardless of the season both in winter and in the summertime. Thanks to the Herraskoski canal built in 1907 between Lake Toisvesi and Lake Marttisenalainen and leading to Näsijärvi, it is possible to paddle around Marttinen.

In the wintertime you can try for example kick sledding in the area. You can also experience the element of ice by climbing up the ice wall or by walking on thin and breakable ice courageously and safely dressed in a rescue suit. In the summertime it's possible to descend by rope from the bluff of Toriseva and experience the charm of the natural rock faces. You can also canoe in the beautiful waters and learn for example the stand-up paddling.

Youth centreMarttinen has constructed special environments for adventures. Marttinen’s multi-functional climbing tower and the indoor climbing wall offer safe climbing programs all year-round. All forms of climbing are exercise that develops a range of skills. Above all else, climbing builds up muscle strength, stamina and motor skills. It also trains problem-solving and concentration skills effectively.

Abseiling
 

Abseiling

We abseil safely down from a climbing tower along a rope. The easiest, fastest and craziest way to come down from the tower in one piece is to abseil. It is best suited for large groups, or those who are short on time. While your group is waiting its turn, it is worth going up 14 m to the top of the tower.

This is part of the high ropes course programme.
