Questions and answersback to top
What kind of self-guided activities can we do during our stay?
On arrival, you are welcomed by a local guide giving you instructions and hints for your stay. You will find also cottage manual with walking route suggestions, recipes and more.
Summertime you can walk in the forest, swim in the lake, row a boat and try ankle fishing. Berry and mushroom season begins in July and lasts till the snow comes (October-December). In the forest, you can pick delicious and healthy blueberries and lingonberries. For a bit speedier adventure, you can also rent mountain bikes or kick-bikes for a ride on small sandy roads.
Wintertime you can ride a kicksled and especially children love sledding (you can rent kicksleds and sledges for the kids are available for no extra charge). You can also rent snowshoes for a nice walk in the forest or on the lake. If you are brave enough to try ice swimming you can make a hole in the ice and make a dip in the lake from the warm sauna. You can also try ice-fishing – we will tell you when the ice is safe to walk on.
After the activities, year-round, you can relax in the sauna, a foot bath and enjoy a campfire or open fire in the cottage.
