Naaranlahti Resort - a lake lover's paradise

Resort Naaranlahti in Finnish Lakeland since 1964

Family Hänninen welcomes you to the Saimaa Region

First guests arrived to Resort Naaranlahti in year 1964 when our grand grandparents Helmi and Arvi Hänninen were hosting the farm. Since then, we, the family Hänninen, have committed to build and develop the resort with passion: Grandparents Kaisa and Antero expanded the operations and built many new buildings on the farm. Now, the third generation, with Janne in charge, is running the Naaranlahti family business.

In addition to being a holiday resort and offering accommodation by the lake in holiday houses and rooms/apartments, Naaranlahti is a traditional Finnish farm with hay and grain fields and green forests around. Fishing in the Lake Puruvesi, famous for its clear water, and living very close to nature are essential parts of our daily life.
