Saimaa Travel
Book now!

Lappeenranta is one of Finland's most picturesque lakeside towns. The town location by Lake Saimaa - the fourth biggest lake in Europe - enables you to enjoy the lake in many ways. Book a dinner in a lakeside restaurant, take a cruise to the Saimaa Canal or on Lake Saimaa.

Being so close to Russia - the border is only approximately 30 km away - it is possible to cruise between Lappeenranta and the neighboring town of Vyborg, Russia, via the historic Saimaa Canal first built in the 1840s. M/S Carelia takes you 76 meters downstream over a course of eight locks.

Cruising on one of the Lake Saimaa ships is a great way to enjoy the amazing labyrinth of islands in the Lake Saimaa region. Lake Saimaa is an area with more than 120 lakes and 14,000 islands. In South Karelia you can enjoy the natural beauty of the area and the cheerful lifestyle of Eastern Finland.
