Now all the stuff has been cleared from the ice and the guides' spring break is about to begin before the summer holidays start. This year, the summer season in Orav will kick off on 26 April with the arrival of summer workers at Restaurant Ruukinranta. From then on, the restaurant will be open until the end of September. There will be plenty of events right from the start of the season. On May Eve 30 April we will enjoy pop and jazz music and on Saturday 4 May the first round of the Northern Saimaa Karaoke Championship will take place in restaurant Ruukinranta.

Today we are collecting all the signs from the winter hiking route

According to the weather forecast, today is the best day to collect the sign poles from the ice. From now on, it is entirely at your own risk to move around on the ice. The ice is already weak in many places and the streams are melting so don't go out on the ice if you don't know the area. You can ask for a local guide from our office.
