Pure nature and lakes abundant with fish, that's Polvijärvi! 

Polvijärvi is situated 40 km from Joensuu. The Huhmari Holiday Centre by the lake Höytiäinen offers spa services, accommodation in holiday apartments and activities for the whole family.

The artificial lowering of the water level of lake Höytiäinen in 1859 reduced the surface area of the lake by one third. As a result of this operation, with the goal of creating more land for agriculture, one of the largest lakes in Finland was shrunk substantially. Today, lake Höytiäinen has a fascinating water area of great variety – great for fishers and nature enthusiasts.
