Hello Lappeenranta! Our entire trip I was looking forward to eating at this little hamburger joint that I had read about that serves one of the best burgers in all of Finland! We arrived at 12 only to discover that they did not open until 3:30!
So we skipped burgers and went on to Imatra. Our hotel was tucked in the woods on a lake…not that it mattered, since everything was covered in snow, but it was gorgeous!!!
After a quick, very late lunch of disappointing pizza, we went to the totally fun Indoor/Outdoor Water Park. It was one big pool with waterfalls, loads of whirlpools, bubble benches, massaging jets that were so powerful you had to hold on to handles, a slide and a water tunnel that took you to an outdoor pool!!!
We spent hours swimming, sliding, getting water massages and relaxing in the saunas~including the mixed steam bath were swimming suits were optional!!! It was honestly so steamy that you could not see if you were alone or not! I was so tired, I slept for 11 hours!!!
