Famous for Rural Comedies

The Suodenniemi scenery takes in a number of lakes, offering great opportunities for fishing. A number of nature trails traverse Suodenniemi, beckoning hikers into the nature. The region is particularly vibrant in the summer because of its many summer homes and cottages.

There is an active local association in Suodenniemi, whose website tells of coming events and the history of the area. The centre of Suodenniemi is familiar to many through Yle’s Maalaiskomedia (‘rural comedy’) and Metsolat TV programmes, which used the Suodenniemi church and town hall as filming locations.
