Finnish Winter Weekend: skiing, snowshoeing and sauna

Finnish Winter Weekend: skiing, snowshoeing and sauna

A short introduction to the Finnish country living! You will be taken good care by a guesthouse host family.  A guided photo tour,  skiing and snowshoeing tours including the equipment. Sauna on both evenings.

Lakomäki wilderness lodge  was built by botanista Alfred Oswald Kihlman in 1885 as the main building surrounded by his 6 500 hectare forest property. His legacy can still be seen in Lakomäki. He planted there f.ex. Abies alba, a fir tree with cones growing upwards. Lakomäki is built of pine logs, which can be felt as cozy athmosphere indoors.

Lakomäki is located next to Pyhä-Häkki National Park. The large forest areas give home to many animals such as rabbits, foxes, bears and elks. In summer time you will wake up to hear birds singing. Pyhä-Häkki National Park  is one of the smallest national parks in Finland located very close to Lakomäki.  You will find very old trees, old forests and svamp areas. On your instructed snowshoeing trip you will also see parts of the national park.

Finnish winter weekend  will make make you familiar with the Finnish winter nature. You will get in the snowy forest by snowhoes and on the lake ice by skies. You can try icefishing if you like. Your host will take you on a guided photographing tour and show you the best spots.
