- Height of viewing platform: 110 m (above the lake Saimaa),184 m (above the sea level)
To get there you need to go by car on the road 62, which goes directly to Anttola, Puumala, Imatra. You can also choose an alternative road (5) going to Savonlinna, however the road 62 is the most popular and the most comfortable one to get to the desired destination. It takes about 20 minutes to drive on the road 62 till you see Anttolanhovi sign on your right and almost right after that there is a sign Neitvuori on your left. And that is exactly what you need.
Taking that turn you will need to drive on the road, which changes into an unpaved one, you will see a wooden road sign Neitvuori (in about 10 minutes) on your right pointing to the required turn (the last one needed) and then you just go till the parking spot with the information board and pointer to the path up to the top of the mountain. Be watchful on your way because it is quite easy to miss the turn.
As you walk up on the path, you will see how steep it becomes. Short breaks would be a good idea on your way to the top of the mountain.
Once you are there, you will see fantastic scenery with a breathtaking view. You can feel the wind blowing and the heat of the sun. It is truly worth visiting and spending time on top of Neitvuori.
