Cruise to the Lake Pihlajavesi Nature Reserve archipelago on m/s Elviira (6 hrs)
This m/s Elviira cruise takes you to the Lake Pihlajavesi archipelago – most of which belongs to the Lake Pihlajavesi Nature Reserve. Lake Pihlajavesi is one of the many lakes making up the Saimaa Lake District. It is also the habitat of the rare and endangered Saimaa Ringed Seal – which you can spot on the cruise if you're lucky. The price of the cruise includes breakfast coffee, lunch and afternoon coffee in the boat's spacious restaurant. The restaurant serves the cruise customers during the whole of the cruise. We will disembark from the ship at Kongonsaari Island, where you can admire the magnificent scenery and also visit the caves which belong to the Salpa Line – a bunker line built in Eastern Finland between 1940 and 1944 to defend Finland against a possible Soviet invasion. Welcome to Finland and to our harbour city of Savonlinna!
