During the winter months in the Savonlinna region, you can ski downhill and cross-country, ice skate, or even snowshoe on lake Saimaa. The snow covered Lake Saimaa is rugged and magnificent, its skating tracks and ski routes winding past islands and islets that leave you with an unforgettable experience.
You can try more exotic pursuits as well in Savonlinna during the winter. “Norppakellunta” or ice floating, lets you float in a buoyant drysuit in an open hole in the ice of Lake Saimaa like a Saimaa ringed seal would.
There are many things to see and experience in the Savonlinna region during winter months, including concerts, theatre and museums.
