Cruises sail from Lappeenranta to
• the Saimaa Canal and the archipelago (duration 2 or 3 hours),
• and there are also visa-free cruises, via the Saimaa Canal, which go all the way to Vyborg or St. Petersburg in Russia.
The cruises to Russia are different from other travel to Russia, as no visa is needed, if the journey is a roundtrip cruise. The visa exemption applies to all nationalities, so you can bring your international friends along on the cruise. Cruise tickets must be booked in advance.
