At the Varala Flowpark you get to swing and pretend to be Tarzan in airy settings and great views! There are zip lines, rope bridges, liana jumps and swings to challenge yourself in. Outdoors adventure park is located in the Varala Sports Institute and it is said to be the most beautiful Flowpark in Finland: while you’re climbing around, you can also rest your eyes on the lovely views to the lake Pyhäjärvi. Climbing is also possible in Tampere region, with HighPark activity park located in Sastamala. Do you dare to take on the ropes?
Flyboard or wakeboard
On a hot summer day when sweat is just pouring out, you might want some refreshing action to cool you down – and that’s just what Tampereen vesijettivuokraamo flyboard experience can offer! The flyboard can shoot you up to 20 meters height with the power of the water jet, while you can test your skills at dolphin dives or double somersaults.
Wakeboarding is also a cool way to spend the day. Both Peltomäki Restort and Tohloppi Wake offer great facilities for that.
If you’re looking for a fun activity in Tampere, we recommend climbing into a giant bubble and trying to score some goals! Bubble football is available for groups all year round, and you can find the service provided by Tapahtumaleijonat and kuplapallo.fi. You’re guaranteed to have a blast with this sport! The game is played with only your legs sticking out of the massive plastic bubble. Be prepared for some stumbling and rolling on the ground. Getting back up also comes with its own set of challenges…
Bet you were also planning to visit the charming observation tower on top of the Pyynikki ridge? There is a cosy café downstairs and either a lift or stairs to reach the top, from where you can rest your eyes on the view over the two lakes, the surrounding forest and the city. If you have a venturous streak, you’re in luck: you can combine the visit with abseiling down from the actual tower! It’s all organized by professionals, who will also guide you through it all. The abseiling is organized on request as well as a regular event.
