About Lakeland Karelia - the Doer

Amazing nature! Because of nature and strong four seasons, we live here in Eastern Finland. We have snowy winter and so strong ice cover of the lakes that you even can drive there with a car.

There are lots of wide nature and unspoiled forests in Karelia. Finland’s legal concept of everyman’s right gives everyone the chance to enjoy outdoor pursuits, and the freedom of the country’s vast forests and fells, and many lakes and rivers, with few restrictions. Public access to private land is much wider in Finland than in most other countries. Read more:

People in Karelia area are very friendly and welcoming and that’s why we wish you to join our life in Karelia. We believe that our guests respect our idea: Live like locals.


We provide all you need for your smoke sauna evening. If you want, you can take your swimming suits or pants with you. If you need help with transports, please contact us.




Mahtava retki! Milloin vaan uudestaan❤❤


Alku jännityksen jälkeen aivan mahtava kokemus! Tainalle kiitokset hyvästä opetuksesta. Ihana paikka, kiitos Sisko!


Hyvä retki, lähtisin toistekin! Alussa meni suhteellisesti paljon aikaa turvallisuuteen ja varusteiden esittelyihin ennenkuin päästiin vesille, mutta mukana oli ensikertalainen eli oli ymmärrettävää. Opin itsekin paljon uutta.


Erittäin opettavainen, mukava, hyvin järjestetty ja onnistunut melontaretki.
