An ideal place for the whole family
Loppi combines the best aspects of peaceful natural surroundings, convenient living and closeness to larger cities.
The municipality of Loppi enjoys a prime location in the Tavastia Lake Highlands in southern Finland. We have some of the loveliest landscapes in Finland, yet Loppi is located in the nation’s population and logistical heartland, only about a thirty-minute drive from Helsinki, the capital of Finland, and about an hour from other major cities such as Turku, Tampere, Hämeenlinna and Lahti. It takes just over an hour to get to the international airport, while trains travel in every direction from Riihimäki, just over half an hour away, and ferries from Helsinki and Turku will take you to Stockholm, Tallinn, St Petersburg and even further.
Loppi is one of the growing municipalities in southern Finland. Our population (currently around 8,300) is growing all the time, as is the number of summer residents. Loppi is one of the most popular areas for people to have their summer cottages in Finland.
Loppi has traditionally been famed throughout Finland for growing excellent potatoes. In addition to traditional family farms, the municipality has some 400 businesses. The town of Loppi Kirkonkylä is lively, with its shops and schools, but there are numerous other villages in the municipality, each with its own active village life.
Loppi’s excellent transport links to the Helsinki area and other nearby cities have made it a popular place to live. Your work may take you to a big city, but our convenient, safe living will bring you back to Loppi in the evening!
