Ukonsaari Cottage


Ukonsaari is located a short paddling distance away from the Katosselkä waters, which is one of the best kept secrets of the Puumala area.

The cottage has a very minimalist furnishing, one that is sufficient for a simple yet relaxing vacation. From the high cliff, one can spend the day just enjoying the scenery and quite possible spot a grey-ringed seal swimming by!

The Sauna , literally just by, rather on the lake, one can just about ‘step into the lake’  and enjoy the refreshing cool swim.

The canoe trip to the Ukonsaari from Saimaa Canoeing base in Niinisaari is approx. 26 km, from the center of Puumala approx. 15 km. It is also possible to go to Ukonsaari by the “shortest way”, i.e. from the parking lot in Petäjäniemi, since the kayaking distance is approx. 3 km. In this case, we will transport the necessary paddling equipment for you to the starting point for a separate fee. It is easy to paddle to Ukonsaari from this parking lot in an open canoe, along a relatively sheltered route. Ask for an offer separately.
