Water Activities & Cycling, Skating, Skiing

Activity guide hosts your group a trip to remember: guided bike ride or ice skating, an unforgettable trip snow shoeing in the beautiful nature, rowing on a Lake Saimaa etc.

The best way to explore the Punkaharju esker is by cycling around the veritable network of mountain bike trails. Choose an easy trail for beginners or a more difficult one for advanced cyclists. With our high-quality mountain bikes (and helmets) you can enjoy speed, comfort and safety. If you prefer riding on smoother terrain, we can offer you a three-gear touring bike perfect for hitting the country roads.

Water activities
Water activities begin from our hotel’s beach on the shores of Lake Saimaa. Make your way in a canoe, traditional rowing boat, or captain a bigger and faster motorboat. You can also rent an SUP (Stand-up Paddleboard) from us. From the lake, the beautiful national landscape opens up from a totally different perspective. You can also observe fish swimming in the water as visibility may be up to ten meters on a sunny day.
