  • Beautiful park, with the ability to shoot between the Islands with a canoe (try) or by boat. Excellent in customer service of Oravi, from where you can organize your visit.

  • Very nice island. Lots of greenery and plants we have not previously had seen. We walked the 7 km circular walk that is recommended, but found this moderately marked. You come there with the purchased ticket at the café on the island, the signs along the trails and the marking there is clearly out, but really was not. 1 or 2 times wrong. After 3 hours through a lot with few short breaks we have the farm on the island. Then bit back to the jetty and on the Jetty sunshine waited for the boat back. Return costs 19 euro from Oravi.. We had bought this online in advance. With a fast boat is fifteen minutes. I found it somewhat pricey. It is also possible to take a boat taxi, which are, of course, a bit more expensive. The island with viewpoint itself is gorgeous. Back in the port of Oravi we have eaten in the restaurant. Not expensive and here was the quality. Made me very reminiscent of fast foods.

  • Beautifully located Linnansaari Park on the island of the same name. The front desk arrange taxi drive from the boat at a convenient time of 15 EUR per person one way. The Park is a wonderful, beautiful views of the Lake, the stand. Few tourists and fortunately few mosquitoes. Seal at this time failed to see.

  • Just perfect place for any water activity! Beautiful views and great hiking infrastructure.
  • I went to the island, which has an old growth forest. To get there you will need to take a boat ride from a nearby town called Oravi, which was 19 the round trip per person. There are also other activities offered in that town, as kayaking and some fishing tours. I recommend it, but bring mosquito protection in summer, I hadn't seen such a mosquito concentration since I went to the Everglades!!
  • Great Park - we went there off-season which gets a little bit expensive since you need a boat to get there. The place itself is really nice and even reveals a bit of the history. You should bring protection against nature's typical insects depending on the season you are there.
  • Very beautiful place
  • Nice place, beautiful scenery and wonderful nature. It's worth a visit and stay for a longer stay 😄
