Saimaa Ringed Seal Watching Safari with wooden boat

    Daily safaris in Linnansaari National park to see the seals. Daily at 10am from May until August.

    3 hours



    The Saimaa Ringed Seal is an endangered species which lives only in Lake Saimaa. While the beginning of the summer tends to be the best time to spot the seal (as they can often be seen laying on the rocks), with the expertise of our professional guides, you’ll have a good chance of seeing the seal anytime during the open water season.  

    Our Saimaa Ringed Seal Watching Safari’s wooden boat moves slowly and smoothly through the waters of Linnansaari National Park, seeking out the secret hiding places where our beloved Saimaa Ringed Seals live. Along the way we will also have the opportunity to observe Osprey nests and other birds.


    A guided tour (in English), with coffee and snacks provided.

    Please note

    Trip is done by boats, please dress according the weather.
