Romantic getaway

Locals recommend

When was the last time you had a chance to unwind and spend quality time with your loved one? Whether you're a foodie, nature enthusiast, culture buff, or activity seeker, the Mikkeli region has something for everyone. We want to help you make your romantic getaway unforgettable by tailoring it to your interests and preferences.


To start, we recommend having lunch at the Kenkävero vicarage or on its terrace, where you can admire the stunning flower displays. Take a stroll hand in hand through the shops of local artisans and D.O.Saimaa shops, which offer unique souvenirs that you won't find anywhere else.

For dinner head to Tertti Manor, where you can dine amidst the lush gardens in the summer or by candlelight in the manor. Tertti Manor’s unique restaurant offers authentic and innovative culinary experiences and clean locally sourced food from Lake Saimaa region. Situated in the beautiful pink main building, atmospheric restaurant offers a side dish of old-fashioned glamour and interesting family history alongside a feast.  For an equally special dining experience, try Sahanlahti Resort in Puumala or the TeaHouse of Wehmais in Juva.


When it comes to accommodations, Uhkua floating accommodation is perfect for nature lovers seeking a unique experience. You'll be able to relax on the Lake Saimaa and enjoy a floating sauna with just your loved one. Alternatively, if you're looking for luxury, Elsanranta in Puumala or PihlasResort in Joroinen offer a peaceful and private escape. Spend the day in bed, order meals to your villa, or take part in a variety of activities.

For a truly unforgettable and adventurous experience, book a private lean-to shelter in Ristiina and spend a romantic evening under the stars. You can even arrange for a chef to prepare your dinner over a campfire. After your evening swim, take in the peace and quiet around the campfire and drift off to sleep in your cozy sleeping bag.


No romantic getaway would be complete without a relaxing sauna experience, and almost every accommodation option in the Mikkeli region offers this. For a truly special treat, check out the Mikkeli Music Festival program or attend one of the many concerts in the city center, including those at Mikaeli Mikkeli and Bar Dom.

Homecoming gifts

Finally, for the perfect homecoming gifts, be sure to pick up some D.O. Saimaa products and locally-made handicrafts as a reminder of your special time together. We are happy to help you plan your dream romantic getaway in the Mikkeli region tailored to your preferences and interests.
