Come, explore and fall in love with beautiful Ruokolahti and lake Saimaa.
February is the coldest month with an average temp of -8,8° C and July is the warmest, 16,7° C. These are of course only averages, since most Februaries the temp drops down to -20 – -30° C and most Julys we see temperatures of 25–30° C, often momentarily higher than in any other part of Europe.Lasting snow cover falls on average on Nov 25th and melts from open areas first, around April 15th. Snow cover is important not only for skiers, but for most animals and plants. They need it to spend the winter, hibernate and to wake up to spring in a timely manner.
