We were on a Webjet tour and our brilliant guide, Javier, organized a viewing for 9.00am. Opening hours are usually 11.00am. The views as with most towers were spectacular . Lots of nature, trees and lakes. A must do if in Kupio

Wonderful views over the city. Restaurant & cafe also if you need them, along with a souvenir shop. Elevator takes you up and down, enjoy the views with dozens of lakes!

From the tower you can see quite far. Puijo is not the highest hill in Savonia, but one on the highest in the province. There is also a nice restaurant and a souvenir shop in the tower. It costs couple of euros to get in...More

View from up is worth to see especially during winter. Snow has covered trees and it looks amazing from uplevel. Have not been there during summer, so have to see that little bit later.

I paid 4 euros with a student sale. The terasse is closes during winter, but you still can look outside of the windows in the cafe. Beautiful view.

Located 2,5km from City center, unfortunately there is no bus route up to the hill. Taxi takes about 10 euros. At the top you can find a small Hotel, (rooms from 50€ with breakfast), Puijo Ski Jumping Hills and Puijo observation tower with restaurant. Top...More

Just like in every wannabe-fancy restaurant this one offered tiny dishes with classy outlooks. Taste was always great, but I was starving before- and after the dinner at Puijon torni.. For fancy dining
