Experience the most beautiful part of Finland by bicycle
The archipelago route in Puumala is a spectacular scenic trail for cyclists and motorcyclists. The 60-km circular route, which was opened in 2017, immediately became immensely popular. It winds through some of the most breath-taking islands, bridges and eskers in the Saimaa region. The Norppa II ferries bikers to and from the Hurissalo and Lintusalo islands.
In 2018 the ferry will operate daily from 15 June to 31 August. The address of the Lintusalo pier is Nestorinranta, Lintusalontie 1661 A. The coordinates are 61° 25,8′, 28°00,1′. The address of the Hurissalo pier is Hurissalontie 390. The ferry has room for 20 passengers with their bicycles or motorcycles. No cars are allowed on board. The trip takes 40–60 minutes depending on the weather.
