“My steamship hobby would hardly have got as big as it has without Lake Saimaa, Finland’s largest. Made up of a labyrinth of different lakes, Saimaa is a true sailors’ paradise. The great lake has almost 15,000 kilometres of shoreline on the mainland and its over 13,000 islands, so that when you’re sailing you constantly encounter different landscapes and uninhabited shorelines where you can easily land. It adds that special excitement to the voyage that you just don’t get anywhere else.”
