Microsoft word - finnish lakes & forests

7 Nights / 8 Days
Self – Drive

On this trip you will experience the Land of the Thousand Lakes. The seemingly endless lakes
in Finland`s lakedistrict are punctuated by several communities that come to magical life in the
summer, from Imatra and Lappeenranta in the south to the town of Savonlinna with its medieval
island castle. The Karelia region gives you a taste of the distinctive culture, flavoured by the
historical influence of the Orthodox faith and the hospitable character of the Karelian people.
Day 01:

Arrival in Helsinki

Arrival in Helsinki according to your own itinerary. Helsinki is a modern cultural city, which
throughout 450 years of history, has existed in the crosscurrents of the East and West. The
colorful layers of history can be seen everywhere; a walking tour of the city centre or of the
magnificent Suomenlinna Maritime Fortress will open your eyes to a fascinating past. Sights of
interest are the historical centre, Senate Square, the Parliament building, Finlandia Hall, the
Sibelius Monument and Temppeliaukio Church (Rock Church).

Day 02:
Helsinki – Lappeenranta (250 km)

Breakfast at the hotel. Leave Helsinki in eastern direction. We recommend a stop in Porvoo, a
small, idyllic town, which is the second oldest in Finland. The town has a unique waterfront with
red ochre sheds, and a medieval old town with cobblestone streets, and many its restaurants,
cafés, museums, galleries. Continue driving east, past the boarder town of Vaatimaa to
Lappeenranta. Lappeenranta is the centre of the South Karelia region in south-east Finland. It is
a city renowned for its natural beauty, its happy Karelian character and its good prospects for
the future. The lake district of Saimaa gives a distinct flavor to the southern Karelian landscape
and life style. The bay area, with its historical fortress and linden trees, is the summer paradise
for local residents, welcoming guests and travelers from all over the world.

Breakfast at the hotel. Day at your own disposal. We recommend a 2-hour cruise along Lake
Saimaa. Also you should not miss one of Lappenranta`s most famous attractions: The sand
castle. A huge sand sculpture located close to the harbour area, which can be visited from June
to August. In the evening we recommend an excursion to the Imatrankoski Rapids close to
Imatra, which have been attracting visitors for over 200 years. As early as 1772, the Russian
Empress Catherine the Great and her retinue visited the Rapids, Finland's first ever tourist
attraction. Today however, tourists can admire the daily Rapids shows which are organized
every evening during summer (mid-June to mid-August), when the swirling waters are released
for a stunning display.

Day 04:

Lappeenranta – Savonlinna – Joensuu (340 km)

Breakfast at the hotel. Today’s drive will really give you the opportunity to experience the
famous lake lands. Drive along Lake Saimaa towards Imatra. Saimaa, Finland’s largest lake, is
a labyrinthine watercourse whose waters flow slowly from north to south and finally through its
outflow channel, the Vuoksi, southeast over the Russian border into Ladoga, Europe’s largest
lake. The Saimaa drainage region covers most of the southern part of eastern Finland, a region
about the size of Belgium, extending almost to Lake Oulujärvi in the north and just over the
Russian border in the east. From Imatra, continue in Northern direction past Lohikoski and
Sulkava to Savonlinna, host of the famous Opera Festival. We recommend a stop in Savonlinna
to visit the famous Olavinlinna Castle, which helped the Swedish to secure Savonlinna from the
Russians in 1475 and is now used as a stage for the Opera festival. From Savonlinna continue
your drive north past Kerimäki and Vihtari to Joensuu. Joensuu is located next to the Russian
border and about 400 km North-East from the capital of the country. It is a university town and
the lively capital of the North Karelia Region. The city was established in 1848 by the Czar
Nikolai I of Russia and it has flourished in the estuary of a notable waterway. It is a vital city with
a growing and relatively young population. We recommend a visit to the Carelicum Cultural
Center, which is referred to as the cultural and tourism centre for Joensuu. A visit there is a
great way to get to know the city of Joensuu and the entire Carelia area, its culture and its

Day 05:

Joensuu – Jyväskylä (250 km)

Breakfast at the hotel. From Joensuu head into western direction. Pass Varkaus on your way to
Jyväskylä. Jyväskylä is especially known for its rich variety of culture; museums, art exhibitions,
concerts, events and theatre performances. Jyväskylä is the hometown of the world-famous
architect Alvar Aalto and houses several buildings designed by him. The Alvar Aalto Museum,
located in a building designed by Aalto himself, familiarizes the visitor with the life and work of
this great talent.

Day 06:

Jyväskylä – Tampere – Turku (315 km)

Breakfast at the hotel. From Jyväkylä drive towards Tampere. Tampere is located between two
lakes, Näsijärvi and Pyhäjärvi. Since the two lakes differ in level by 18 metres, the Tammerkoski
rapids linking them have been an important power source throughout history, most recently for
generating electricity. Tampere is also the second most important urban centre in Finland after
the Helsinki region and the biggest inland city in the Nordic countries. From Tampere continue
to Turku, Finland’s oldest city and previous capital. Sights of interest are Turku Castle, the
Forum Marinum Maritime Centre, the Aboa Vetus and Ars Nova museums and the Cathedral.
The famous Mumin theme park, perfect for a day visit with the whole family, is located close to
Turku in the coastal town of Naantali.

and Merchants, artists and pilgrims, have travelled the King's Road. The Meeting of East and
