What to do with children Lappeenranta-Imatra, Finland

Fun program for the whole family

For children and those just young at heart, the Saimaa area offers plenty of fun holiday experiences to look back on for many years to come. The untamed roar of the Imatrankoski Rapids, the giant Sandcastle, Flowpark Adventure Park and the many spas in the Saimaa area are just a few of the components of a memorable holiday.

The Lake Saimaa area offers wonderful, year-round options for family holidays. Small-scale locations and handy connections in the Lappeenranta and Imatra regions make family holidays easy.
