2 hours and 30 minutes
Guided seal excursion
The Saimaa Ringed Seal is an endangered species that 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.
Duration n. 2,5 hours. The trip is suitable for all.
Daily departures at 10.00 from May to August.
A guided tour (in English), with coffee and snacks provided.
