Hiking, climbing and frisbeegolf in Loviisa

The stunning natural beauty and varied nature of Loviisa offer great opportunities for outdoor activities throughout the year. The tracks wind through myriad landscapes and visitors can easily choose the right walking, hiking or running track for them. Loviisa offers a wide range of fun activities both outdoors and indoors. But did you know that there are also great climbing areas and one of the best 18-hole frisbee golf courses in southern Finland?

The Kukuljärvi hiking trail is situated in the majestic forest area between Ahvenkoski and Ruotsinpyhtää centre. The eight kilometre long trail begins next to the sports centre in the Ruotsinpyhtää centre by the shore of the Kymijoki River; from there, it winds upwards towards the high rock landscapes. At times, you can glimpse the sea from afar, until you come down to Kukuljärvi pristine natural environment. The wondrous forests and marshlands bring variation to the scenery. At Kukuljärvi, you can swim and grill sausages at the campfire sites. The tour starts from the sports centre of the village, Puistokuja 1, Ruotsinpyhtää.

Loviisa’s climbing rocks are located in Ruotsinpyhtää: Huuhkajavuori, which is near the Kukuljärvi recreation area and Haukkakallio, which is close to the sandy beach of Särkjärvi. The Huuhkajavuori climbing routes have upper anchors and most of the routes are bolted. The routes are short, but you may find some of them challenging. The other climbing area, Haukkakallio, is located approximately three kilometres from Huuhkajavuori. It is a large uniform cliff which offers 105 routes.

You can play frisbee golf to the south of the town centre. An 18-hole frisbee golf oasis is located at the Valko sand ridge; the route takes you through the forest and across the beautiful hilly and rugged landscape of the sandy ridge. Children, adolescents and adults can practise frisbee throwing, which requires precision. Frisbee golf is one of the best ways to relax and spend time together outdoors.
