Kuolimo canoeing tour is a great way to explore the canoeing possibilities on Lake Kuolimo. Here you canoe on drinkable clear waters. Tour can be started from Savitaipale or Partakoski. The route line is indicative, because on open lakes the wind direction must be taken into account when choosing a route.
There are about 10 landing sites on the shores of Kuolimo and there are also commercial services nearby. Landing sites have lean-to shelters and toilets, and many landing sites have a pier. Snack needs can be supplemented at a few locations across the lake, but it is worth noting that the distances to services are long. Canoe rental is available in Savitaipale.
