Saimaa Canoeing Services/Hanhiniitty

Hanhiniitty is in Puumala, in the archipelago of Lake Saimaa, with great canoeing options where the waterways to Savonlinna, Mikkeli and Lappeenranta meet. Our Saimaa Canoeing services include various options for canoeing in the nearby archipelago or venturing further away to different parts of Lake Saimaa. We rent out kayaks, canoes and other equipment to people setting off independently, and we can also help to plan routes. Our guided excursions offer a safe way to take to the water without having to worry about the route – concentrate on paddling and admiring the surrounding nature. Canoeing courses offer a safe way to take up a good hobby. Come and canoe with us, or at least plan your trip for next summer!

In the winter, when Lake Saimaa freezes over, we rent out snowshoes and equipment for winter excursions. We can also accompany you on your winter trip.
