Welcome to Hanhiniitty

Our Hanhiniitty is a family business in the isle village of Niinisaari in Puumala,  offering craftsmanship and nature experiences, right at the heart of Lake Saimaa. Here you’ll be right in the middle of nature and village life – immersed in some of the most beautiful lake landscapes in Finland. We want our clients to experience what magnificent nature of Saimaa archipelago and traditions at their best can offer

Our Martti is the village blacksmith, who forges traditional, high quality handicraft products all year round. And Sanna, the blacksmith’s wife, is a nature enthusiast, speaker for sustainable development and well-being as well as an active canoeist and nature guide. As locals we know the area and its stories. We want to take good care of our guests and our environment.

We are located along the Puumala Archipelago route, popular with cyclists. Here you can rent  bikes, combine canoeing on your bike tour or stay along the route.
