Guided boat trips

Go on a half-hour Saimaa cruise or go around Lintusalo with our guide, and you’ll see Saimaa in a nutshell: large open waters, narrow, even surprising straits. Saimaa also has an interesting Skiitta island (“chapel island”) where we take boat trips all day long. See more and book your cruise.

For children

One of Nestorinranta’s themed nature trails is designed for children.

The forest is also home to the Forest elf’s hut, where there are stories about the fairy tale creatures of the forest, which were once believed in Finland.

See more about what else we offer for children.


Nestorinranta has chickens, quails, dogs and in the summer also sheep.
