Excursion to skiittasaari
A full-day excursion to the Orthodox village chapel on Ilkonsaari island
Experience Suur-Saimaa and Ilkonsaari, where the path leads from one Orthodox chapel to the next. In just 15 years, five small Orthodox chapels were built on this naturally beautiful island. The island offers some interesting natural attractions, such as an underwater sandbank that can be traversed over 300 metres.
The island is also an ideal setting for a full-day trip, with plenty of paths, outdoor toilets, sheltered barbecue spots, lean-tos, and sandy beaches. The island is part of the Saimaa Geopark. For more information about the island, see the website of the South Karelia Foundation for Recreation Areas.
The excursion will be made in a covered Finnmaster boat (“Vilmari”), which can take 5 passengers. Your boat master and guide will be Matti Viialainen.
