How to get here
Take a bike ride to Puumala Archipelago Route – book your holiday here
A popular bike ferry Norppa II operates once a day during the summer from Nestorinranta to Hurissalo, Kivisalmi and back. Thanks to the ferry you can cycle 60 km around the Lietvesi open in beautiful scenery and enjoy the best sights and services of Puumala. Lietvesi is part of the large Lake Saimaa and Saimaa Geopark.
See more about this wonderful route from the site of visitpuumala. See also the cycling holidays of Nestorinranta on our cycling site. If the timetable of the ferry doesn’t suit you, you can book the boat taxi of Nestorinranta.
Take a trip in May to see the rare Saimaa ringed seal – book accommodation here
The trips are made in a cabin boat, which can take 10 passengers. See the timetables and prices on the site of Lakeland GTE.
Nestorinranta – the place immortalised in song
An old song loved by the Finns is based on a true story that took place on the Nestorinranta grounds in the 1960s.
A man called Nestori Reponen lived in the village and had his sauna where Nestori’s Cabin currently stands.
Nestori used to play his accordion while heating the sauna, and once it so happened that a ringed seal climbed onto a rock nearby to listen.
The Saimaa ringed seal was on the verge of extinction in the 1970s. However, thanks to extensive conservation measures, over 300 ringed seals now live in Lake Saimaa – with luck, you can see one yourself in the waters near Nestorinranta.

See the Saimaa archipelago
Nestorinranta is located between Lietvesi and Suur-Saimaa. The nearby area contains numerous breath-taking islands to which we organise trips. A tragic love story is related to Liittokivi Island featured in the photo – ask your hostess for the whole story!
The road leading to Nestorinranta is a sight in and of itself: The Puumala archipelago road runs through 11 islands, the largest of which are Niinisaari, Liimattala and Lintusalo.
