AVAILABLE: Year round.
On this tour we visit the famous Imatra Castle hotel built in 1903. This unique art-nouveau hotel was voted the most beautiful building of Finland in 2014. We drive to the checkpoint of Imatra on the Russian border and then along the beautiful river Vuoksi to Alvar Aalto Church of Three Crosses. We’ll pop into the church if possible. WWII history comes alive at the legendary Immola airfield that witnessed Adolf Hitler’s visit in 1942. We’ll see the idyllic old Niskalampi residential and the Ukonlinna resort that has become the leading center of sport tourism in South Karelia. Lake Saimaa with its spas and ports will become familiar to us, too.
