Finland is a country with millions of summer cottages in the forest by lakes and the sea. Vacations at the cottage are an important part of Finnish culture. We will take you to an authentic Finnish cottage where you can experience first-hand the peaceful silence of the forest, the fresh sea breeze and a delicious lunch or dinner. A Finnish-style wood burning sauna is also easy to arrange if you are interested.
Your group will be picked-up from requested location in Helsinki by private van or car depending on the group size. The 45 minutes scenic drive to the summer cottage is an experience by itself. You have the opportunity to maybe spot deers and even mooses and you will see the Finnish countryside. At the cottage you will first be served with a welcoming drink and you will be introduced to the hidden paradise. After having well settled you have the opportunity to experience the authentic wood burning sauna and go dip yourself in the refreshing Baltic sea. After bathing there is a traditional three course lunch prepared from fresh ingredients. Then there will still be some time to for example chill or play outdoor games before heading back to hotel or airport.Example itinerary: 11.00 a.m. Pick-up from hotel 11.00 – 11.45 Scenic trip to the cottage 11.45 – 12.15 Exploring the surroundings with the welcoming drink12.15 – 13.15 Private sauna and swimming in the Baltic sea13.15 – 14.45 Lunch 14.45 – 15.15 Leisure time rowing or walking in the nature15.15 – 16.00 Driving back to the hotel
