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 Sammakkoniemi camping, there are 5 huts, a small cafeteria, campfire places, cooking shelter, sauna, well and dry toilets. There is no electricity 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 camping 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).

Study wooden huts on an island, deep in Nature. Meet people at the campfire Compost toilet. No running water. Kiosk only sells crisps nuts chocolate coffee ice cream & sometimes grilled fish. Note that it is a 20 euro round trip by ferry to the Oravi shop! (or a 12 km round trip paddle) No electricity but shop will charge your phone for free from their solar panel. Just to be aware of what it is and what it is not. If you want comfort and showers, go to the hotel in Oravi at 75 euros a night.
