LOCAL RECOMMENDATIONS

From Muikkula, it is easy to make day trips to the Puruvesi and Savonlinna regions. We have listed our recommendations for vacationing in the surrounding area:

Linnasaari lagoon

Right towards Muikkula locates an amazing Linnasaari lagoon. Linnasaari is a beautiful place to visit. There are three natural harbors in Linnasaari. Harbor on the other side of the lagoon have a wooden shed, a barbecue shelter, and a toilet. The other two harbors have campfire sites.

Punkaharju Harjutie

The picturesque ridge road has been described as a "natural amusement park". The route around lake Puruvesi from Muikkula to Punkaharju is  amazingly scenic, especially at the sunset.

The world's largest wooden church in Kerimäki

The wooden church of Kerimäki is gorgeus on the outside and beautiful on the inside. On the same trip, stop by the local's favourite Café Kaivopirtti for an ice cream. In Kerimäki, you should also take care of any bigger cottage grocery shopping!

Olavinlinna in Savonlinna

The medieval Olavinlinna is a historically significant and interesting attraction that is worth experiencing. The internationally famous Savonlinna Opera Festival is held at the unique premises of the castle every summer. 

Local food scene

The charming market place in the harbour of Savonlinna is in the heart of the local food scene. Enjoy coffee and lörtsy like a local and find other delicacies, like kalakukko, from the market stalls of local bakeries. The best muikku meals are served at the market too. We also recommend a walk to a beautiful pancake café in Kalliolinna and the promenade from the market place to Olavi's Castle. By the promenade you will find great restaurants to have dinner and enjoy the view to the lake. Also enjoy on the spot or take-away with you to Muikkula local beer from Mustanvirran Panimo and Huvila restaurant.
