"Two day trip to Mikkeli" Mikkeli by ZenLady34
Mikkeli Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 105 photos
Our friends have a cottage by the lake Saimaa, only nine kilometres from Mikkeli city center. They invited us over for a couple of days and so we decided to go. As Mikkeli is located only three hours of drive from our hometown Porvoo we decided to go there by car.
Mikkeli is not a big city. I wouldn't call it a city at all. It is rather a town than a city, like my hometown Porvoo. Mikkeli has only 46.000 inhabitants on an area of 1 622 km², where from 18,7 % is water.
The city center is quite small and we could not find a local restaurant in the area. The life seemed to be focused at the market place, where one can find few cafeterias and buy some local handicraft's and watch people walking by.
In my opinion best of Mikkeli is its location. It is in the middle of very beautiful lake area and surrounded by nature. There are absolutely many possibilities for an active holiday, like paddling the Oravanreitti (Squirrel route). It actually goes from Juva to Sulkava and is 52 km's of length.
In Mikkeli area one can also enjoy different Trails, more information on the official Mikkeli Tourist Office pages, take a look!
Mikkeli Tourist Office pages offers very good information on activities, accomondation, sights etc.
- Pros:in heart of Lake Saimaa district
- In a nutshell:for nature and quiet life lovers an excellent place
