Der Saimaa-See bietet viel für Kanufahrer

Der Saimaa-See ist das größte Seengebiet Europas und ist, mit seiner unvergleichlich vielgestaltigen Landschaft, einfach atemberaubend schön. Hier wechseln immense Wasserflächen mit verästelten Insellabyrinthen, die raue Schönheit der Schären und steil aufragenden Felsufer mit der Üppigkeit grüner lichter Wälder im Süden und Westen und der Hügeligkeit der Landschaft im Norden und Osten. Zum Beispiel die Nationalpark Linnansaari bietet ideale Verhältnisse für das Paddeln.

Eine Tour mit einem Riesenkanu paddeln, einen Wasserlehrpfad mit der ganzen Familie besuchen, die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt vom Kajak aus erleben oder die Ruhe der Nationalparks genießen - die Möglichkeiten sind fast unbegrenzt.
