Worth to visit. Gasoline for your boat. Quite Nice restaurant aside even though a bit pricy, but on the other hand no other options. A small grocerystore included with basic stuff. The personnel are friendly.

Camped here the night before and the night after staying on the main island in Linnansaari. They have ferries three times a day to the main island. Tent fee includes use of the shared bathroom/shower facilities and a sauna at specific times of day (didn't get to use) Overall a good place to crash overnight in a tent though perhaps a little pricey? 20 euros?!

My wife & I visited Saimaa in February and were blown away by both the beautiful landscape & warm, friendly people. Neither of us had any previous experience cross country skiing or Nordic tour skating, but had a great time learning both in the peaceful surroundings of Linnansaari Park. The team at SaimaaHoliday Oravi kitted us out & provided excellent instruction to get us on our way. We were well taken care of at the end of each day on the ice as well, with delicious drinks & dinner at the local park restaurant (a 2 minute walk from the hotel apartments). All the food was fresh, local cuisine & everything was absolutely delicious. Private access to the on-site sauna in the evening was an extra treat as well. The best part of the experience was definitely the Saimaa Holidays team though. Marie & team went out of their way to make us feel warm & welcome every step of the way, and we quickly felt incredibly relaxed & at home. We were both very sad to leave after our 5-day weekend stay, and can't wait for a return trip. Thanks Marie & all!

If peace and tranquiliy is your idea of a perfect holiday, a kayak trip with Saimaa holiday is a perfect option. Because it was out if season, they couldn’t offer us a guided trip, but suggested a trip to Linnansaari island instead. The staff went out of their way to create a tailor made holiday for us. They also suggested we book a guide for the first 3 hours to assist us and this definitely ensured that we could find our way through the hundreds of small islands on the lake. We stayed 3 nights in a very basic block hut with no electricity or running water. You chop wood for cooking and for the sauna. And after a sauna session, you cool down by jumping into the lake! We returned home well rested and refreshed. BUT make sure you don’t forget the mosquito repellent at home...

We stayed in a cottage on the lake 4 nights. We were 9. 3 families of friends. Beautiful location. Perfect cottages: new, well kept, secluded, on the lake, with all the amenities: sauna, private boat and barbecue at the dock .... It was exactly what I imagined a Finnish experience to be. We rented kayaks, hiked, went fishing and had beautiful long sunsets on the lake. And the staff: they're adorable bears! Thanks x everything.
