The picturesque Astuvansalmi rock paintings is a must-see and must-capture attraction in the Mikkeli region. In Astuvansalmi’s rock, a large side profile of a human face can be seen from the lake. Did you know that the curiosity of Astuvansalmi is a rare female figure?
The stunning location for admiring the pure nature and the clear waters as far as the eye can see. Hike up to the hill and breath fresh air while capturing the labyrinthine Lake Saimaa for Insta. In autumn colors the landscapes are magnificent!
Do both: paddling and photographing. The Squirrel Route is for a nature-loving Instagrammer who is ready to explore Lake Saimaa by water. The starting point is just under a half-hour drive from Mikkeli centre. Come springtime or in early summer when nature is waking up!
Tertti Manor stands proudly in the middle of fields. Take a photo in front of the pink manor or sit down in the secret walled garden. In the springtime the courtyard of the manor is decorated with blossoming cherry trees! Pro tip: wear the matching outfit with the manor 😉
Come in early summer and you’ll step into another world… Take a stunning scent of peonies and hundreds of traditional perennials.
You may think that Mikkeli region is not the beach destination… But did you know that Lake Saimaa has more shoreline than in Spain? Yep, that’s a fact. On a warm summer day pack your swimsuit with you and head to Pistohiekka beach.
Not a concrete place, but worth of mentioned in the list. The celebrity of Lake Saimaa is a cute Saimaa ringed seal that you’re able to spot on seal watching cruise. What would be better content for your IG than this? Post a photo of the world’s rarest seal and the likes are guaranteed!
