Enjoy total privacy and luxury of quietness of the Gulf of Finland´s archipelago. Give yourself a special treat of wondering around in this beautiful rocky island that is the shape of the bear and therefore called Karhusaari, Bear Island.

You will fall in love with the delicious Finnish food, fresh fish from the Gulf of Finland and local producers´ organic ingredients are cooked right there on the Karhusaari´s own kitchen .

You will be staying in fabulous air-conditioned all-inclusive rooms in traditional log houses.

And of course you will be experiencing the Finnish sauna with the most magnificent sea view and dip in the sea if you dare.

Years ago the fisherman and very talented man with his hands landed on this beautiful rocky island located only 12 kilometers / 7 nautical miles from Kotka.

Since then Matti and Riitta Horto has build up the Karhusaari Resort while respecting nature, comfort and privacy of their customers without forgetting high end facilities around the resort.

As Riitta and Matti owns the best seafood restaurant Ravintola Wanha Fiskari http://www.wanhafiskari.fi  in Kotka that has been credited with Chaine de Rotisseurs plates and Riitta with the Chaine de Rotisseurs chain, you will be experiencing the same delicious local food here right in the privacy of  the Karhusaari island.
