Enjoy a holiday in Rääkkylä!

Rääkkylä is a community of islands, culture and enterprise that reflects the best traditional and modern aspects of the international world. In summertime the Paksuniemi Harbour serves tourists, boaters, campers and locals from the beginning of May to the end of September. Paksuniemi is situated along the boating route between Savonlinna and Joensuu.

One of the most well-known events in Rääkkylä is the Kihaus Folk Music Festival in July. The Kihaus Folk Music Festival has been a regular summer event in Rääkkylä for twenty years. It manages to surprise even the most spoilt-for-choice urban areas every year, and it fills the whole village with folk music lovers every time. Children and young people enjoy music in their own special music camps.

We warmly welcome you to visit Rääkkylä!
