Puumala – at the heart of the lake Saimaa!
Head out to Veeran ranta at the Puumala marina to start your walk. Information boards will guide you on along the way, describing the name of the pier and its history in Finnish and English. Inspiration for the names has been drawn from the history of water traffic on Saimaa and from notable local historical figures. There are a total of seven guest piers in the marina: Veera, Jallu, Norppa, Kippis, Nesto, Elsa and Sylvi. Along the route, stop for a cup of coffee at any of the local cafés, take the lift to the overlook at the bridge or just sit and watch people coming and going in the marina.
You can find a parking spot under the bridge or at the Veeran ranta car park, address Niementie 1. The first information board is located in front of Veeran ranta pier, near the breakwater. The route runs by the guest marina and under the bridge towards the Neste fuel station by Satamatie. After the fuel station, continue on Satamatie before turning left at the last pier.
The round-trip walk is about 2 km. Welcome!
