Day as a Finn

Have you ever dreamed of living as a Finn?

We want to invite you to our countryside family estate to experience a Finnish lifestyle.

Lets pick up some berries and bake traditional “pulla”, chop some fire food and heat up the sauna, collect birch and make traditional sauna remedies.

Or perhaps you´d like to take a walk with us through the old village of Vuotunki and listen to the stories of the Sami who lived here for centuries and centuries before the first Finns settled here in the 1680s, the adventures of the Finnish newcomers, the ways of life then and now.

You can build your own Day as a Finn program from following activities:

Summer

  • history walk through the Vuotunki village
  • nature walk in the nearby forests and swamps, including berry picking if our wild berries are in season at the time of your visit
  • baking “pulla”, a traditional Finnish sweet pastry
  • chopping fire wood
  • making birch whisks for the sauna
  • bathe in our 3 saunas and learn why sauna is such an important and sacred part of Finnish life
  • enjoy a delicious home cooked wild food meal
  • Most of the above activities can also be arranged at night time if you wish to experience the magic of the arctic summer nights, when we have 24 hours daylight.

Winter

  • history walk on snowshoes through the Vuotunki village
  • kicksledging on the village roads
  • tobogganing, fun for all ages
  • ice fishing
  • baking “pulla”, a traditional Finnish sweet pastry

Most of the above activities can also be arranged at night time if you want a chance to experience the Northern lights.
