Joensuun Latu is an organisation promoting year-round outdoor activities. It is a regional club operating with members mainly from the Joensuu area. We cooperate closely with other clubs and organisations. We have almost 2 000 members. Most of the activities take place in North Karelia but we make also hiking and skiing tours, for example, to Lapland. Some of the events are arranged with other clubs or Wilderness and Nature Guide students at the North Karelia college Niittylahti. 

Trekking from short trips in the Joensuu vicinity to long trips elsewhere
