An amazing cruise to beautiful lake Saimaa to see Saimaa ringed seals in the end of May. We were lucky to see 4 seals in our private cruise!! Arto is very, very friendly and helpful guide who can share lots of information of Saimaa ringed seals and environment in Saimaa.
I strongly recommend to choose LakelandGTE activities!

We had a lovely experience cruising with Arto. He is knowledgeable of the history of Saimaa and its surroundings, we enjoyed the stories he shared as well as the beautiful accordion performance by him. It was so relaxing to just enjoy scenery of Saimaa. The onboard coffee & snack were a nice touch. We also really appreciate the details he kindly provided us to find him on a very busy day at the harbor and the additional info such as the market and WC. We recommend his service highly.

I loved the atmosphere, and the accordion music on our coffee break gave the perfect mid-summer feeling. The weather was superb too. We saw an osprey nest but unfortunately not any Saimaa seals. The Captain said seals are most likely to be seen in early summer or late spring so for that we were a bit late.

3 hours seal watching experience was great , time just flew initially we didn’t see seals but last one hour was very exciting , we saw seals multiple times.Arto was great , his experience speaks through the stories and the pictures we saw . Arranging and coordination for the tour was very easy with Arto. The snacks was very nice and my 6 year old son got to even be captain for some time .

An enjoyable cruise in the middle of the beautiful sceneries of Lake Saimaa and its archipelago. No dull moments, but easy and comfortable atmosphere with the captain telling entertaining stories about different local and Finnish themes. And in many different languages, too! Also, the solar-powered boat is eco-friendly.
