Cabins & Cottages are an essential element in Finnish life. Forgetting the daily grind is inevitable in retreats amidst the country’s greatest resource:  Rugged Natural Beauty.

A typical Finnish Cabins on summertime

Long summer nights are best spent on the porch of a cottage, having a relaxing drink with family and friends. Throw away your clocks, forget about to-do-lists and let the endless sunlight recharge your batteries.

Finns have an inherent yearning to nature. Only five decades ago, most of Finland’s population lived in the countryside and worked in traditional trades connected to their surroundings. These days, towns and cities are the most populous areas and people stay in touch with their rural roots by escaping to cottages and cabins at weekends.

Lakeside cottages are the ideal way for Finns to get away from modern life and have some time to breathe freely and listen to themselves think. Sweating off the stress in a sauna with regular cooling dips in the lake is the ultimate way to purify both body and mind, and sessions might go on for hours.

Example of what to Do – In winter


Jaakko, 55 says:

    “One of the top ten experiences in my life was a snowmobile ride in the forests, fields and top of frozen lakes in northern Finland. This was placed in the middle of the night. The amount of stars in the sky was breath taking.”

Katja, 31 says:

    “The best thing about Finland is a cottage by the sea or a lake. The starry skies on frosty winter nights. And the quiet that sets upon the lakeside cottages in the evenings.


Nowadays luxury cottages are available throughout the country and are an extremely popular way to spend holidays. However, many prefer a more traditional approach and seek themselves to smaller cabins with stripped-down amenities that are usually located further away from everything.

Cottage life in summertime is often combined with activities such as hiking, fishing, mountain biking, mushroom and berry picking – anything you can think of in the vast forests and water areas Finland is famous for. On wintertime you should poke your nose out the door. The air is dry, cold and fresh. The spruce branches are heavy with snow; the skis are leaning against the wall. What will you do today? Ski, go for a dogsled ride, go ice fishing, try the traditional Finnish sauna for ultimate relaxation and also try warm outdoor bath tube where you can sit outdoors and just enjoy, even enjoy the Northern Lights in the evenings or just get cosy with your friends in front of the fireplace.
