The Rantaraitti lakeside route – accessible to all


The beautiful Rantaraitti lakeside route traces the shores of Lake Saimaa and is within easy reach from Lappeenranta city centre. With a total length exceeding 20 kilometres, the route can be accessed from several points. The eastern part is connected to the rest of the route network by a rowboat connection, a 150-metre rowing distance between Pappilanniemi and Pieni Lamposaari island. The entire route is signposted. You can briefly visit the lakeside route, but it is also ideal for longer excursions, as there are several rest stops with tables and benches along the way. For those who enjoy more strenuous exercise, there are outdoor fitness facilities and the Huhtiniemi fitness stairs along the route.
