In between
two national parks

Our modern cabins, built of environmentally friendly, cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels that absorb carbon, are located at the heart of Lake Saimaa in the village of Oravi, standing on a narrow headland between the Linnansaari and Kolovesi National Parks. The area, imbued with history, enchants not only with its location but with its coziness, too.

Our identical nine cabins, furnished with high-quality materials, feature wall-to-ceiling windows with views towards the Oravi canal, the picturesque Lake Saimaa, and the Linnansaari National Park. The panoramic windows are perfect for letting some of the pure Finnish light in, or for admiring the clear night skies. Every cabin has a beautiful view of the lake from the living spaces, bedroom and sauna. If you’re extra lucky, you might even catch sight of some Northern Lights.

Each of our holiday cottages offers a stunning view of Lake Saimaa, which is free for anyone to swim, fish, and play in. Our bright and spacious cabins are perfect for travelers who seek quality accommodation in a natural setting.

The idyllic Oravi village and the services offered by the small community, ranging from a village shop and a restaurant to various leisure and outdoor activities, are located on the other side of the headland, just a short walk away from the resort area.

There is one shared parking area for vehicles on the resort’s grounds, as well as up to four charging stations for electric cars (surcharge). You can drive your vehicle to the door of your rented cabin for unloading luggage, but please move it to the parking area afterwards so that the emergency routes remain clear. Airport transfers from Savonlinna Airport to Kanava Resort and back are available by prior arrangement.

Paths from the cabins lead to Kanava Resort’s private and shallow, sandy beach, which also has a shared dock.

On the beachfront, between cottages 3 and 5, you’ll also find Kanava Resort’s own campfire spot. Firewood for the open fire at the campfire spot can be found in each cottage as well as from the woodshed located near the tip of the Kanava Resort area.

There are a total of nine cabins on Kanava Resort’s grounds. The plot also includes an old vaulted cellar, and a glass pavilion, suitable for organizing small events and meetings on-site.
