Small boat cruise to Lake Saimaa Geopark locations

Some of the geopark sites are located in the Lake Saimaa islands. One way to get there is by a private small charter boat. There are couple of islands that should be on the "must do" list when it comes to Lake Saimaa: Satamosaari island and Ilkonsaari island. Satamosaari is a beautifull laguun like island with option to go swim in the Lake Saimaa. Ilkonsaari has a unique sandbar that makes a nice location to take photos. Ilkonsaari also has several orthodox tsasounas that you can admire when visiting this island. 3 hours is suitable time when visiting one of the islands. We recommend 5 hour trip if you are planning to visit two islands. With 5 hour trip we will include lunch.
