Punkaharju ridge  has attracted nature tourists already for over 200 years.On the other side of the ridge you can see lake Puruvesi and onthe other side is glisterning lake Pihlajavesi. The ridge has a fascinating history, both from the perpective of nature and culture. You will hear more about it on a guided walking tour in the area.

Lusto  is a national museum and science centre of international importance focusing on Finnish forest culture and illustrating the interaction between man and the forest from the past to the future. Lusto's exhibitions, events, work demonstations and theme days provide a diverse and illustrative insight into the significance of forests in the life of Finns. Next to the museum there is the Punkaharju arboretum entailing over 150 hectares of research forest, consisting of more than 50 species of trees, mostlu conifers. From 30 000 to 35 000 people visit the museum yearly.

Hotel Punkaharju  was opened in 1845 as living quarters for the foresters and lodging for travellers.In 1898 a separate building called Czarina's Villa was added. Amazing views open up towards the lake and if you follow the path downhill, you will find  a log sauna and a pier down by the lake. 

Hotel restaurant is known for their fish dishes, which naturally are prepared of fresh fish. We have included in your package a three course dinner, which you can enjoy even outside if the weather is good.
