Recommended hotels

Because of a big coinciding festival, there’s a very limited number of hotel/hostel accommodation available in Heinävesi. So please, be early.

Some additional options listed (in Finnish) at heinavesi.fi/majoitu

You might want to book the hotel through your favourite booking service (such as agoda.combooking.commomondo.com or trivago.com), as the prices might be lower that way.
