      Wonderful and ecological winter activity in Eastern Finland
      Finnish winter is so beautiful. Thank you Arto for your guidance also in French. We took photos and enjoyed nature. Driving snow scooter is a fantastic winter activity and easy to learn. Due to weather conditions we were not able to drive on the ice. If we could do it, the rate of the experience would be excellent instead of very good.

      Great experience - Also for beginners
      Thanks so much to Arto our guide! We had never done this before, but Arto's instructions were great and after a short time we had so much fun scooting on the lake and in the forest! We certainly recommend it to everyone :)

      unforgettable!
      This experience could simply be described as unforgettable. The beauty of Lake Saimaa at sunset, the wonder of a dazzling day, the silence, the lucky we had and Arto's competence and kindness will stay with us forever. I found and booked the cruise on the web, very quick and easily I have to say: we immediately received a confirm with instructions and, further on, a useful reminder just some time before departure. It is important to emphasize that the cruise is on a fully electric boat, so it is very silent: this is fundamental not to disturb the animals’ quiet (and your own!). Arto was always very clear about not being able to grant the seals' sighting, but …we were blessed! After a couple of fast spottings of a diving seal, we were so lucky to spot a curious pup who observed us silently sailing beside it for long, unforgettable minutes! We also spotted a couple of ospreys and a grouse, not to mention Saimaa’s astonishing views, commented by Arto’s in-depth information on the Lake and seals’ life cycle. At sunset, Arto presented us with warm coffee and homemade buns, which he was so kind to cook gluten free as we mentioned in our requests. He was an exquisite host even to introduce us to the Dutch couple sailing with me and my family, encouraging us to chat and creating a relaxed atmosphere.

      Great experience
      Our seal tour with Arto was very nice. The tour is driven by a comfortable electric boat. Even in bad weather you are protected in the boat. During the trip you can look for the seals with available binoculars. In the meantime Arto tells you a lot of interesting things about the life of the seals. The experience is rounded off with a coffee and a sweet piece. I can fully recommend the tour.

      Great cruise in lake Saimaa
      Great relaxing trip in beautiful lake Saimaa. Arto was a great host, and he was able to share with us a lot of information about the lake and about Finnish culture. He even played a traditional song with the accordion. Thanks to his electric boat, the trip was very comfortable (hardly any noise, and no fumes). All in all, a great experience. As a bonus, Arto's English was perfect and he was very flexible arranging a slightly different hour of departure to help with our schedule. Our kids had a great experience also, and Arto was very kind with them and let them pilot the boat for a short time.

      Wonderful seal safari on Lake Saimaa
      In August 2023 we joined a seal safari by ecoboat. We spent three wonderful hours on Lake Saimaa and felt really close to this piece of paradise. Arto is a very hospitable person (we even had a little coffee/ tea break :). He gave us insight into the life of the Finnish Norppa, the bird species and the region in general. Fortunately, we even spottet a Norppa, some Fisheagles and Swans. We were impressed by Arto‘s knowledge and enjoyed peaceful Lake Saimaa a lot! Elisabeth & Anton

      Saimaa Seal Tour
      We booked this trip to see a glance of Saimaa ringed seal knowing that this time of the year it would be very difficult to see one. We were more than happy with the tour. It was excellent. We did not see the seal but saw birds like Kalasääski, Osprey, and its nest. The quiet lake scenery with a beautiful sunset was superb. Arto was an excellent guide and gave us a lot of information with some great pictures and videos. A silent electric boat was very nice. Thank you Arto! We will return in May 2024.

      Saima Seal tour
      We booked the Saima seal trip and were not disappointed since we got to see some seals. The boat is electric so very quiet which made the trip even more enjoyable since we don't like noisy motor boats. The guide tells many interesting stories so that you're always entertained and the coffee break was lovely. We highly recommend this trip if you are in the area!

      Really nice tour! Thank you Arto!
      Amazing tour with a lot of information provided by Arto! We managed to see the seal 3 times (unfortunately only in the water and not laying on a stone, but still). Really cool to see an animal that is that rare. Also, coffee and pastries were provided for a coffee break in between. Arto was very knowledgeable and friendly. I would highly recommend the tour! :)

      Wonderful short cruise in Saimaa
      We saw Saimaa ringed seal (saimaannorppa) and a nest of Osprey (kalasääski) with two adult birds and one chick. There were binoculars on the boat that passengers can borrow. The skipper Arto was very nice and had great stories about the area. The electric boat was so quiet, a great alternative to motorboats. Great way to get out to lake Saimaa if you don't have time for a longer cruise or paddling.

      Wonderfull Saimaa seal cruise
      Great, very well arranged & hosted experience. We succeded to see a Saimaa Seal twice. The information, experiences & stories provided and told by Arto would only have been worth the Cruise. In addition the Lake Saimaa sceneries and nature we saw was very beatifull and unique.

    The floating was funny and relaxing. I had a lot of fun with friends. Our guides were helpful and made us feel very welcome.

    Kelluminen oli todella hauskaa ja rentouttavaa yhdessä ystävien kanssa! Mukavat ja auttavaiset ohjaajat saivat olon todella tervetulleeksi Puumalaan ja yrityksen vieraaksi.

    An amazing experience. The landscapes are wonderful and a controlled and safe fall on the ice is indeed an interesting experience. With a group of friends, this was one of the most wonderful experiences.
