Finland, EUROPE

A beautiful forest, the shores of Lake Saimaa and fresh air inspire everyone. The big lake Saimaa, which is the largest in the country with 4,400 square kilometers, is located along the border in a place where two cultures come together that have been in constant contact throughout the centuries, the Russian and the Finnish. One of the rare and endangered freshwater seals lives in this lake, the Saimaa ringed seal. Also, the Saimaa salmon is another endangered species in the same habitat

On this trip we explore the waters and forests in the area of Lagos. We started and ended the trip in a wooden design villa located at the foot of Lake Saaimo. The cottage has double rooms and features with a complete kit, including a sauna. On the premises near the hut we can find pool, restaurant, sauna and wellness center. The calm waters of Lake Saimaa invite you to swim, sail and discover the numerous islands covered with forests, harboring large rock formations and cliffs. A journey of adventure to know the authentic culture and nature through a special guide is great for those families seeking a degree of comfort while also being outdoors.

Anttolanhovi's history dates back to 1917 when two Russian dukes hid there during the Bolshevik Revolution. Although the Russian nobles could only save a small portion of their luxurious possessions, this detail was enough to attract the attention of the locals. Still, until 1920, it was a quiet place where the nobles enjoyed a golden age. Modern-day Anttolanhovi is built just one kilometer from the "hiding place" of the Russian dukes.

YA few meters away you can enjoy different activities like fishing, swimming, rowing, cycling, walking, running, and playing tennis. This natural heritage around Lake Saaima makes it one of the most beautiful regions of Finland.

Accommodation:

Luxury wooden villa, double room.
