Lammassaari, Vekurinveranta and Kalliolaakso are located on the shores of lake Vekurijärvi (length approx. 2 km, width approx. 300 m) while Kaakonnokka lies on the shore of lake Kuusijärvi (length 4 km, width 0.5 km). Both lakes are rich in fish: a rod and line can catch roach and perch, while casting might even net you a pike. Fishing is also possible on lake Eväjärvi: a boat is available from the shore of Jorkiranta estate. Ask the host about fishing licences.

The forests of Jokiranta estate (100 ha) contain tracks for snowmobiles and forest roads and paths for jogging. There are also some good mushroom spots in the forests, as well as blueberries, raspberries and lingonberries during berry season.
