What’s the story behind your company? What kind of services do you provide?
My father started a company to operate cruises on Lake Saimaa in 1990. I grew up with boats and captained one already at 18 years old.
Today, our company provides luxury cruises. Our 100-year-old steamboats have a sense of true nostalgia combined with high quality and modern technology. For instance, we use the latest satellite positioning systems and electronic navigational charts to ensure the safety of our passengers.
Our cruises can be divided into three main categories: sightseeing cruises, tailored private cruises and our newest experience, week-long cruises on Lake Saimaa.
We would like travellers to experience Finland and the waters of Saimaa for longer. As far as seasons go, summer is our busiest time. However, spring and fall are both picking up and I believe winter will in the future as well. All our ships are properly insulated, so we can set off as soon as the ice allows it. Winter cruises are real Arctic travel – you can experience the life of an international explorer.
