National Park Tour Lakes: Linnansaari 1 day

National Park Tour Lakes: Linnansaari 1 day

National Park Tour is a self-drive holiday in Finland. Skafur-Tour has made holiday planning easy for you, you simply choose out of ready-made 1, 2 or 3 day active holiday packages and move the chosen "building blocks" to your travel cart. You can choose out of three routes Lakes, Lapland and later also Archipelago. We can also book for you a Sixt rental car (up to 9 people). Are you traveling with a dog? Ask for pet friendly cars.

Linnansaari National Park  consists of hundreds of islands and islets on Saimaa, on home waters of Saimaa ringed seal. Here you will see the lake nature at its best: wide lakeviews, islands, cliffs, and behind them flourishing groves. On the main island Linnasaari you can climb up to hill Linnavuori, where you can admire the wide lake views. Also recommended is to visit the nature heritage center Oskari in Rantasalmi.

Safari to the labyrinthine Linnansaari archipelago  is taken either by a classic wooden motorboat enjoying the beautiful nature or by canoe paddling slowly. You will land on the northern side of Linnansaari and hike up 500m to the Linnanvuori, where you can admire the great views over the National Park. Yu can choose either a boat trip for 1-7 people 3h guided in Finnish, English or German or a paddling trip for 1-14 people 5h guided in Finnish, English or Swedish.

HakoApajan Aikhituvat are the life's work of Esa Heiskanen. The main building called Aikhitupa has been built of 1000-4000 years old logs lifted from the bottom of the lake next to Aikhituvat. The logs of the additional part of the building again are beams used in the early days for timber rafting. In summer time there is and exhibition in the other half of the building. Many interesting artefacts, for example a weapon cache were found during the construction time from the bottom of the lake. These artefacts combined with the ancient history tell you about the past of the region. Exhibition outside shows, how log can be prosecced by hand and what can be created out of it.

You will stay in small cottages by the small lake next to Aikhitupa. The to cottages we mainly use are called Louhenkolo (2-4 people) or Kivitasku (4-6 people). If the group is bigger than 8 people, also other cottages available will be used.

Each cottage has its own rowing boat. In addition you can rent a fishing set. The price for fishing permissions, fishing gear and life west is 22€/day.

Järvisydän Holiday Resort  is located within walking distance from your accommodation. There you can have dinner at middle-age restaurant Piikatyttö or rent a kayak for a day at Safaritalo  (32€/solo, 49€/duo), kanoe (32€/2people) or a giant canoe (99€/10people).
