We actually came to Lahti to go swimming in the pool right under the biggest ski jumping hill. Unfortunately the weather was terrible the day we were here - 10°C in August! We decided to be chickens and leave the swimming gear in our bags. The poor school kids were still swimming though. But then again the Finns like to swim in frozen lakes so where's the problem....
Equipment: Your best fur swim suit. Maybe it'll help not getting cold ;)

Climb the hill
Apparently there are not only crazy people who jump of the large hill in Lahti - there also are about as crazy people here who climb the jump.
Equipment: I guess you better take a rope.
