Lakesperience - Explore the Nordic-Baltic lakes

The Lakesperience project (2018-2020) aims to connect the lakes in Tampere (Finland), Linköping (Sweden), Tartu (Estonia) and Burtnieku (Latvia) as a joint tourist attraction. The project provides opportunities for lake tourism companies to develop their services for all seasons of the year. Above all, a joint Nordic-Baltic Lake -marketing message will be created during the project for marketing the lake areas and related services especially for German tourists.

Each partner location will organise local product development workshops for lake tourism companies. The most motivated companies will be provided an opportunity to participate also in international workshops where they can learn from each other, share experiences and benchmark. The project connects lakes Pyhäjärvi and Näsijärvi in Tampere Finland, lakes Åsunden, Järnlunden and Stora Rängen in south of Linköping, Sweden, lake Peipsi in Tartu, Estonia and lake Burtnieku in Latvia as a joint tourist attraction.

The project will enhance business and marketing cooperation between at least 20 Finnish, 20 Swedish, 15 Estonian and 15 Latvian companies that provide services, such as accommodation, food, activities, bike and other sport equipment renting, fishing and sauna for tourists.
