Luonteri is an excellent water touring destination, with its precious system of waters and wide range of services. Its crystal clear water attracts not only the Saimaa ringed seal, but also boaters and paddlers. There are several excursion harbours in the area, so you can enjoy the beauty of the water system for several days.

Neitvuori, which is an essential part of the area landscape, rises majestically from the shore of Lake Luonteri. Neitvuori is known as the “Switzerland of Savo” and, from its summit, visitors can admire the expansive, unparalleled beauty of the lake landscape below. The terrain is otherwise gently rolling with hills. Neitvuori is connected to the trail network, which enables longer hikes through diverse landscapes.

The area is managed by Metsähallitus, Parks & Wildlife Finland, Lakeland.
