Location of Tahkovuori
Tahko is a holiday resort located in the very heart of Central Finland on a nice peninsula covered with hills and forests and surrounded by the waters of the Tahkolahti Bay and lake Syväri. The distance to the nearest town of Nilsiä is about 13 km. Nilsiä is a small compact town which offers better shopping possibilities of food, clothes and presents.

The city is surrounded by Lake Kallavesi and several parts of it are built on islands. Kuopio is known with a national delicacy, Finnish fish pastry (Kalakukko), and the hill of Puijo with the Puijo tower. Besides being very popular outdoor recreation area crowned with a panorama restaurant up in the tower, Puijo serves also as a stage for a yearly World Cup ski jumping competition.
