“Peaceful, reachable also in winter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

I have been in Linnasaari many times. In wintertime you can rent skates in Oravi, Savonlinna, Linnasaari is about 5km away. In summertime only way to get there is by boat. Rent a canoe or go with water taxi, it's up to you. Scenery is excellent! If you are lucky, you'll see "norppa" aka seal of saimaa. There is only about 300 norppa left in whole world... In linnasaari, there is couple of hiking routes across the island (between 1km to 7 km). Prepare to climb some hills if you choose the longenst one. Sammakkoniemi is the name of the camping area. If you choose a tent, it is free of charge. There is also small cabins awailable. And sauna, of course :)

“One of the best opportunities to see the Seals of Saimaa.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Beautifull area in a midlle of the most beutifull part of Finland. The Lake Side. See the Lake Saimaa in it`s very best. Take a hike and keep your camera and binoculars ready. Maybe you will see those very precious animals?

“Beautiful and pieceful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

I liked that there was not any waves. The nature was untouched becouse it was a national park. We had an excellent guide from Rantasalmi

“Best BIrdwatching Site in Finland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Peace, quiet, privacy. You can only get there by boat, so if you don't want to rent a rowboat (recommended), you can use the reasonably priced water taxi. Take a mobile phone
