Relaxation and Activities

Relaxation

You can relax in comfortable deck chairs on the pier or in the wood-fired sauna and jacuzzi right at the cottage. 

Activities at the cottage

If you want to be more active, you can go swimming or fishing right from the beach and pier or you take the boat out on the lake. Standup paddling, canoeing, or kajaking as well as e-biking are further popular sports activities around our Mökki. In late summer there are plenty of berries to pick or you can go mushroom hunting.
In winter you can strap on snowshoes or cross-country skis and take a tour directly from the Mökki to Lake Saimaa or the surrounding forests. 

Activites nearby

Skiing, both downhill and cross country, are popular winter activities in Ruokolahti. The ski center Freeski is located in Salosaari overlooking lake Saimaa with six ski slopes, a sledding hill, a café, and an equipment rental shop. There are more skiing resorts nearby. 

In summer, Freeski's slopes serve as Saimaa Bikepark, where you can do forest & downhill cycling. 

Ruokolahti also boasts Finland's largest Pumptrack which is built for cyclists, skaters and scooter riders alike. In addition there are several running and nature trails.

Or let yourself be pampered in one of Imatra's spa resorts. The waterslides and waterfalls of the  pool areas are highly appealing to children, while parents can enjoy the spa with all kinds of treatments.
And there is also a golf course nearby.
