Exploration and Wellness in Finland
Hotel & Spa Resort Järvisydän is a family-owned resort located in the heart of Lake Saimaa, the biggest lake in Finland. The name of the resort "Järvisydän" literally translates as "Lake Heart" which describes the area perfectly. Saimaa Lake is known for its beautiful landscapes with thousands of islands and forests, which you can discover while staying in Järvisydän. Järvisydän is right next to the oldest national park of Finland, Linnansaari National Park.

In Hotel & Spa Resort Järvisydän, you can enjoy unique accommodation types, and try our various outdoor activities which include canoeing and paddling, or partaking in a boat trip to spot an endangered Saimaa Ringed Seal. During the winter, when Lake Saimaa is frozen, you can ice skate. After an active day in nature, enjoy local Finnish food served in our restaurant, and relax in the unique Lake Spa of Järvisydän.
