Ilkonsaari is a wonderful hiking destination in beautiful Saimaa. Several orthodox tsasounas built on the island add cultural value.
The Ilkonsaari island consists of two rocky ridges running southeast-northwest which are divided by a bedrock fracture zone weathered deeper than the surrounding environment. Rocky ridges are connected by a narrow land bridge. A stone ash paved path passes through Ilkonsaari. Due to the rocky terrain, there are steep climbs and descent. There are signposts for the Saimaa Geopark near both boat docks on the island.
