Linnansaari Nationalpark. 2025

One of the most beautiful areas of Lake Finland is Linnansaari National Park with its hundreds of islands and islets.

We paddle in a unique environment, which is the home of the Saimaa ringed seal and the rare white-backed woodpecker. Finland's largest osprey colony also lives in the area.

Cask cultivation was practiced in Linnasaari for a long time. That's why nature is dominated by deciduous trees, which offer beautiful greenery in the spring. During the trip, we also have time to visit the old forest ranger's farm, whose lands are still managed in a traditional way. We proceed at a leisurely pace. Anyone who has ever tried paddling is welcome to join.

You can also travel with the guide from Helsinki.
