Sports and Experiences

Well-being, sport, tourism, culture and tourism experiences – wrapping all this up in interesting products and services increases the attractiveness of a region as a good place to live, visit and do business. Our assets are high-level know-how of sports and cultural events, and clean and easily accessible nature, with a multitude of lakes.      

The Päijät-Häme Strategy for Tourism and Events gives guidelines on the development of the region’s tourism and events industry. The main areas of the strategy are events, movement and cleanness. The tourism and events strategy is supported by Päijät-Häme’s strategy for sport and health. The goal is to strengthen the region’s tourism and well-being industry.        

The main actors in the R&D activities related to well-being, sport and tourism experiences are the region’s sport academies, educational establishments and other organisations. The main R&D target is to go international and expand the generation of growth and new jobs.   

Exercise, experiences and well-being roadmap

Päijät-Häme’s road map for sport, experiences and well-being is being prepared with stakeholders. LAB University of Applied Sciences is co-ordinating the road map process and the work will be ready in spring 2021.
