Private Summer Cottage Visit with a stop at Verla

Private Summer Cottage Visit with a stop at Verla

Live a summer day like a Finn! You will drive by car from Porvoo to a charming Finnish summer cottage in Jaala stopping at the World Heritage Site Verla Groundwood and Board Mill on the way. Enjoy sauna, swimming in natural water and barbeque!

The private summer cabin of the Marie family  gives you a chance to experience, how most of the Finns spend their summer holidays by lakes. Each family has their own summer cottage, where they enjoy the short but light summer, meet their friends having barbeque and sauna together. Pascal will spend the day with you. You will learn to heat the sauna, you will learn, how to have sauna in the real Finnish way dipping in the lake several times. You will also cook a barbeque meal together. 

Verla Groundwood and Board Mill is a unique part of the Finnish history. It is a story of the birth and growth of the little mill community by the rapids of Verla in the northern part f the Kymijoki river valley, the leading centre of the Finnish woodprocessing industry in the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century. The Verla Mill was closed in 1964 but it has been maintained in its original shape as part of world's industrial heritage. 

We warmly recommend this experience for self-drive travelers but it is also possible for the guide to take small groups with him from Porvoo.
