The longest zipline in Finland, spanning across the lake from the top of Tahko ski resort area
Tahko has unveiled Finland’s longest zipline, with the zip track extending from the top of Tahko’s ski resort area over Lake Syväri to Piazza corner.
This thrilling new activity is open year-round and operated by SeikkailuKuopio Ltd.
The zipline’s starting platform, also known as the launch deck, is located south of Pehkubar next to Joke Street, while the landing platform is situated near Tahko bridge at Piazza’s corner. The elevation difference between the starting and landing platforms is approximately 140 meters, and riders can reach speeds of up to 50 km/h while gliding downwards 6 to 40 meters above the water surface.
There are no structures between the upper and lower platforms; only two parallel cables provide support. This allows for smooth gliding and enables two individuals to descend almost simultaneously.
Please note that weather conditions, such as strong winds, thunderstorms, heavy rain, or extreme cold, may affect the opening hours. For any potential exceptions, please refer to Tahko Zipline’s Facebook page. The staff is also flexible in accommodating groups outside of regular opening hours.
Tahko Zipline was supplied by a German-Swiss company that has constructed numerous similar ziplines across Europe.
