On this guided adventure we will paddle in crystal clear lakes in two outstanding National Parks. We'll see hundreds of small beautiful islands and pristine forests and enjoy lunches in gorgeous lake surroundings. There is a good chance to view an endangered Saimaa ringed seal, a species that exists only in Lake Saimaa as well as ospreys, elk, deer and otters.

This tour offers both demanding and relaxed paddling days. You will taste local delicacies like lake herring and fresh berries. You'll also learn the history, culture and lifestyle of Lake Saimaa surroundings. Our main luggage will be transferred for us and we will take only our day packs in the kayaks so we can paddle from one accommodation to another while enjoying changing surroundings. All meals are included and we'll have our lunches enjoyed outdoors around open fires. We will spend nights in hotels and old summer mansions. At the end of each day, we can relax and wash off a day's work in the famous Finnish sauna and cool ourselves by taking a dip in crystal clear lakes.
