Welcome to our hostel

Linnansaari National Park in the middle of Lake Haukivesi, a part of greater Saimaa Lake complex, represents Finnish lakeland at its best. With its hundreds of islands and broad open waters it is a paradise for boaters. The main island, Linnansaari, has marked hiking trails with many interesting sights.

On Linnansaari Island, at Linnansaaren Ekohostelli, there are 5 huts, a small cafeteria, campfire places, cooking shelter, sauna, well and dry toilets. There is no electricity and no running water on the island. Each hut has 2 bunk beds (sleeps tot. 4 persons), table and chairs. The room price include the use of washing room in the morning. Traditional Finnish wood heated sauna can be booked separately.

The area is accessible only by boat or canoe. There is a regular boat service, taxi boats and canoes for rent in SaimaaHoliday Oravi and SaimaaHoliday Rantasalmi (Spa & Hotel resort Järvisydän).
