Located in the heart of Finland's Lake District, Mikkeli offers you the unique opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the midnight sun from the water's edge. The shores of Lake Saimaa offer all types of cottages with different specifications. In wintertime the lakes freeze over thick, opening up new possibilities for ski across the lakes in the bright winter sun, or drill a hole through the ice for some winter fishing. In summertime you cruise to town by boat. Mikkeli District also offers plenty of cultural activities that you can combine with your relaxing cottage holiday, including ballet festivals, theatre performances, and museum exhibitions. Mikkeli is famous for its lively nightlife offering plenty of bars, pubs and clubs.
