Punkaharju is surrounded by lake Pihlajavesi and Puruvesi, both part of lake Saimaa. In summer you can explore lake Saimaa by renting a kayak or a small boat from us, which you can take to the crystal clear water of Puruvesi-lake. Right next to holiday village there is numerous cycling and hiking routes, with view points to the lake. Discgolf- and golf courses, beach- and tennis courts are also available.

In winter you can cross-country skii or skate along the frozen lake, in a 15 km tour skating network: An ice skating route on natural ice, which is also one of the longest tracks in Finland. Experience the thrill of tour skating or go snowshoeing to the Snowshoe Park in ridge area, where you can have break at our Pancake Café with lake views.
