Archipelago bicycle route

Take the archipelago route with Saimaa Bikes electric bikes

The Puumala archipelago route is a stunning scenic route around Lake Saimaa for cyclists and motorcyclists. It was opened in summer 2017 and covers a distance of approximately 60 km. Along the route, waterways are crossed by numerous bridges, as well as by the Hätinvirta ferry (taking approximately 10 minutes) and Norppa II, a ship for cyclists and motorcyclists skippered by Pirjo and Jussi (with a journey time of approximately 40 minutes). The route mainly follows various asphalted roads. Along the way, there are two short (approximately 2 km and 4 km) sections of gravel track.

It is possible to cycle the route in one day by muscle power alone or with the luxury of an electrically powered bike from Saimaa Bikes. There is plenty to see, do and experience along the route, along with good food and accommodation, so it is worth taking several days to complete the trip.
