We have also put together a couple of round trip programmes for you to help you to plan your holiday.

Programme 1
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. 

See the programme for food & culture lovers, including the 4 cities of Lappeenranta, Imatra, Savonlinna and Mikkeli

Programme 2
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...
