 Lahti-Vesivehmaa Airport in Asikkala is a local aviation centre where practically every form of sport aviation is represented.


With a population of a little over 8,000, Asikkala is a municipality well-known for its beautiful natural environment, such as Pulkki­lanharju Ridge, and Vääksy Canal and its park area. Asikkala’s location between two large lakes – Päijänne and Vesijärvi – has attracted businesses in industries such as the travel and manufacturing industries to the area. Examples of these businesses include Rapala, the best-known fishing gear manufacturer in the world, as well as Rapala’s subsidiary Marttiini and Finlandia Uistin Oy.

Other interesting companies include the door manufacturer Jeld-Wen, which is part of an inter­national company group; Viipu­rilainen Kotileipomo; Kanavan Panimo; and EL-Kori, which manufactures refri­gerator trailers for food transport.
