  • 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
  • In the winter of linnansaari National Park is a lake between the heart and the perfectly groomed in Oravi 18 km long tour skating route. There are also two kahviota, which may include pancakes. The two starting places are also leased facilities. Route charges in the winter 2017-18 is/was 8 €/person (which is happy to pay, so gorgeously of the route).
