We have also put together a couple of round trip programmes for you to help you to plan your holiday.
Finnish Lakeland for food & culture lovers
Lappeenranta and Imatra are located in the region of South Karelia in
south-eastern Finland. The magnificent metropolis of St. Petersburg is
just about 200 km away from Lappeenranta and Imatra. The region’s
cultural life is rich and varied, mixing both old and new. There are
events galore, particularly during the summer months. In the waters of
Lake Saimaa, by far the greatest attraction is nature: the archipelago
and lake scenery and the clear water.

Finnish Lakeland for active travelers
The active summer in the Saimaa area is full of fun things to do. In
the waters of Lake Saimaa, by far the greatest attraction is nature: the
archipelago and lake scenery and the clear water. If you are lucky, you
may even see a Saimaa ringed seal basking on a rock on a summer’s day.
Trying out the refreshing beaches and waters of Lake Saimaa is a must
during your holiday. You can spend a relaxing summer day lazing on the
beach or playing beach volleyball. There is plenty to do for fishing
enthusiasts on the waters of Lake Saimaa that occasionally offers really
big catches. For nature travelers, the Saimaa area has plenty of trails
to hike and walks of various lengths. The beautiful archipelago views
along the cycling routes make the trip fly by and the many sights and
cafés are great places for taking a break. More tips for your holiday
are available in the weekly summer programme, with activities for both
groups and independent travelers...
