How often do you fall asleep to the sound of silence? Heat up the lakeside sauna in the summer or get cosy in front of the fireplace in the winter, rest and revitalisation are guaranteed.
Nowadays, luxury cottages are available throughout the country and are an extremely popular way to spend holidays. However, many people prefer a more traditional approach, seeking smaller cabins that offer the bare minimum of amenities and are usually located further off the beaten track.
In the rush and crush of modern life, the rarities are what we value most, such as space, quiet and time. The space to breathe, a time to dream… you can find these treasures in Finland, where the lakes are many and the people are few.
Most special activity at a summer cottage is heating up the sauna – following up with swimming, fishing and eating endless amounts of fresh food such as grilled fish, new potatoes and hand-picked berries and mushrooms.
There is a reason why on average every fifth household in Finland has some kind of a cottage. There you can really have it all. Relax, breathe in the peace and silence and enjoy the company of family or friends.
Summer in Finland is a time spent outside the house enjoying the short but sweet season, and all worries are postponed until nights get dark again.
