Travel to Lappeenranta and Imatra region

Thanks to its excellent transport connections, the Lappeenranta and Imatra region is closer than you might think: just two hours from the Finnish capital of Helsinki and its excellent flight connections from all over the world. The journey to the region of thousands of lakes and splendid lake views goes by pleasantly by plane, car or train.

When you look at the map, it seems that the area is covered by more water than land. There are over 13,000 islands in the region and the boating routes extend farther than the eye can see. Tourist Information will help you find the best activities and attractions that the Lappeenranta and Imatra region have to offer.

The words horizon and holiday get a whole new meaning at Lake Saimaa – the surroundings are well worth their nomination as a Finnish national landscape.
