Saimaa Geopark Region Savitaipale


The lively southern Karelian village of Savitaipale is strengthening its position as a site of interest for its existing residents and others who value exercise and well-being services. In comparison to its population count, the municipality is the favourite for summer cabins in South Karelia. Thanks to the almost three thousand summer cabins in the village, Savitaipale’s population of 4,000 swells to three times its normal size during the summer season.

For a small municipality, Savitaipale is home to exceptionally good exercise, well-being, and cultural services. There are four sports centres and the opportunity to practice a wide range of sports. Nature observation, hiking, skiing, fishing, rowing and holidaying at summer cabins are all firm favourites in Savitaipale. During the winters, it is possible to hike across the frozen Lake Kuolimo on skates.
