Nature activities

Kruunupuisto offers a perfect setting for nature lovers and those interested in exploring the surrounding nature. During the summer period the ridge area is perfect for the very Finnish sport; Nordic Walking. You can walk the well marked trails in the ridge area or in the beautiful Arboretum area very close to Kruunupuisto. Nordic Walking poles available for rent from our reception. If you want more speed, you should rent a bicycle or fatbike or join our guided tour for a cycling tour on the ridge road, Arboretum area or to the village centre of Punkaharju on your own. To explore the lake Saimaa we recommend our catamaran cruises or renting a rowing boat or a kayak!
