Nature trails and spots in the Lake Saimaa region

5/21/2019 1:23 PM

Finland’s beautiful natural surroundings offer clean shores and various types of trails for recreation. The point of attraction in our area is Finland’s largest and Europe’s fourth largest lake, Saimaa, whose environs provide a splendid milieu for hiking and camping. You can set off on foot, on a bicycle or in a canoe, for example.

Walking in the wilds is allowed in Finland if no damage is caused to the environment. The region of Lappeenranta and Imatra offers the possibility to hike for a couple of hours in the immediate terrain or leave along with a tent on a weekend trek.

Does a walk in the shelter of the forest have any interest for you, or then perhaps a demanding trek at various elevations? In the Lappeenranta and Imatra region, it’s possible to hike for a couple of hours in the immediate terrain or leave with a tent on a weekend trek: the choice is yours!
