The village of the year 2021 Valpperi - Community spirit and diverse sports activities

Ninna | 6.10.2021

Whether you're looking for a day in the nature with friends or some special family time, the village of Valpperi is worth visiting. Are you dreaming of a sauna experience by a small pond or would you rather try a brand new mountain bike trail or a frisbee golf course? Or are you looking for a new home in a village community where no neighbor is left behind?

Surrounded by the most beautiful Finnish nature, there is a small and communal village of Valpperi. This little village has many surprises awaiting for the ones that take the time for a visit. Valpperi has just undergone a transformation and it was chosen the Village of the Year 2021 - and no wonder, as Valpperi has been developing over the past five years a lot.

Valpperi's new school building lays in the uttermost pease of landscape surrounded by fields and forests. From the school you may climb the long wooden stairs that lead onto a high wooded hill. There is a calm pond on the hill. And by the pond there is a small sauna building and a cozy kota or goathi (a little hut). Here you may enjoy the magnificent views down to the village of Valpperi and the surrounding nature.
