Snowshoeing in the Lake Saimaa region

You can enjoy snowshoeing at many places in the Lake Saimaa region, for example in our beautiful national parks.

The winter snows will not stop you from enjoying walking in our woods and glades. Put on snowshoes and grab a pair of ski poles, and you are ready to explore the forests and shores of Lake Saimaa. Many good snowshoeing routes can be found in our local national parks Linnansaari and Kolovesi, or on the Islands of the Fortunate (“Onnellisten Saaret”) right by the Savonlinna city centre. You can go snowshoeing on your own or hire a guide to take you.

Snowshoes and other equipment can be rented from rental shops and from companies that offer guided tours.
