What to do Activities Summer activities

Summer activities in the Saimaa region, Lappeenranta and Imatra

The active summer in the Saimaa area is full of fun things to do. Trying out the refreshing beaches and waters of Lake Saimaa is a must during your holiday. You can spend a relaxing summer day lazing on the beach or playing beach volleyball. There is plenty to do for fishing enthusiasts on the waters of Lake Saimaa that occasionally offers really big catches.

Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is a great way to explore Lake Saimaa area together with friends or family. Peaceful but physical SUP boarding is suitable for everyone who enjoys watersports while watching the amazing lakeside views. SUP boards can be rented for an hour or even for whole week from Tuplakasi or Drakkar Sport.

For nature travellers, the Saimaa area has plenty of trails to hike and walks of various lengths. The beautiful archipelago views along the cycling routes make the trip fly by and the many sights and cafés are great places for taking a break.

If you want to cool down on a hot summer’s day, visit the Holiday Club Arena in Lappeenranta, with public skating available all year round.

More tips for your holiday are available in the weekly summer programme, with activities for both groups and independent travellers.
