The future of the area

Himos is growing and developing continuously. The holiday centre is also expanding towards Lake Päijänne, and there are excellent plots available in the Päijänranta shore area. Unlike other holiday villages, the Päijänranta area is open in all seasons. When the construction of the Holiday Club Resort starts, the area will have even more services that will attract further investments. The spa resort, complete golf course, high-quality slope services and large festivals will make the Himos tourism centre even more comfortable.
