Cruise aboard s/s Puijo along the Heinävesi route through hundred-year-old canals

Prices from:
75€
/ Person
Combine a half-day canal cruise along the beautiful Heinävesi route with a visit to the opera in Savonlinna. The cruise begins in Savonlinna’s passenger harbour at 09:00 (Mon, Wed and Fri). Once past Haukivesi and its seals, this is a journey of twists and turns through narrow passages and island labyrinths. Along the way to Kerma, there are three lock canals that are older than one hundred years. You will be served a tasty lunch on board. The return trip will be by bus from the Kerma canal with an arrival time in Savonlinna of about 15:45.

For an additional charge: Ticket for the evening’s opera at 19:00 in Olavinlinna; prices start from €98.50 per person. Savonlinnan Opera Festivals: 8.7.-6.8.2016.

On Tue, Thu and Sat, we offer the cruise in the opposite direction: the bus to the Kerma canal departs at 12:30 from the harbour parking area. The ship back to Savonlinna departs from the Kerma canal at 14:15 and arrives in the passenger harbour at 19:30.

S/s Puijo plies the Heinävesi route along the Savonlinna – Kuopio route, and stays overnight in each harbour in turn. Why not combine a trip to Savonlinna with a visit to Kuopio, the famous city of kalakukko (a local fish pastry delicacy from Savo)? You may choose to spend the night either on board or in a hotel. And the return is easy: either sailing swiftly on the waves of Saimaa or by bus. The cost of a one-way cruise from Savonlinna to Kuopio is €95 (additional charge for meals, lodging and other transport).
