Linnansaari National Park Reviews
Bellissimo parco, con la possibilità di girare tra le isole con una canoa (da provare) o in barca. Ottimo in servizio informazioni di Oravi, da dove si può organizzare la visita. more »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.
Zeer mooi eiland. Veel groen en planten die we nog niet eerder hadden gezien. Wij liepen de 7km rondwandeling die wordt aangeraden, maar vonden deze matig gemarkeerd. Je komt er met het gekochte kaart... more »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.
A very nice natural park where you can go hiking through a few different paths of different length. There is also an old house, stable and sauna from a farm preserved in its original state from a few decades ago when the last owners left. You can reach the park with your boat, with a canoe or kayak (you can eventually rent one in Oravi) or with the ferry from Oravi. You can also sleep there with your tent or just use the camp fire to prepare your own food for a special picnic. There is also a small bar, just in case. ;)
Just perfect place for any water activity! Beautiful views and great hiking infrastructure.
