Hop On Hop Off Ristiina
Thank you for summer 2021!
Hop On Hop Off tours will return in summer 2022.
Day trip to Ristiina and Astuvansalmi rock paintings
The main destination of the Hop On Hop Off day trip to Ristiina is the rock paintings of Astuvansalmi. These 6000-year-old rock paintings are the largest in the Nordic countries and definitely worth visiting. The rock paintings are located by the water, so on this trip you can experience the paintings as well as the amazing sceneries on Lake Saimaa from a boat.
The rock paintings include altogether 80 painted images of people, elks, boats, fish, lines, palms and paws as well as areas painted in red. How many images can you find during your visit?
Along the way, we will stop also at Kyyhkylä Manor, Hotel Heimari and Restaurant Kallioniemi. At Restaurant Kallionniemi you will have the opportunity to enjoy a tasty lunch by Lake Saimaa and get familiar with the culturohistorical milieu of the villa built by E.N. Setälä.
