How to spend a Finnish cottage holiday?
Finnish cottages have traditionally been summer cottages, but all-season cottages are becoming increasingly popular. On average, Finnish people use their cottage somewhat 80 days a year.
Cottage life is a mean of relaxations for their Finnish owners - a place where one can lose the sense of time and forget the hustle and bustle. A great way to start the day at your holiday cottage is with a morning swim followed by a coffee on the terrace. The rest of the day may be spent by swimming, rowing, fishing and visiting the nearby museums and other destinations. Sauna is traditionally an evening activity, and most saunas in Finnish homes are heated somewhere between 6pm and 9pm. As Finnish people are addicted to sauna, rituals such as dipping in the lake, and refreshments during the sauna trip are appreciated. Afterwards, one might create a campfire or heat a grill for making couple of sausages to enjoy with a cold drink. Enjoy with family or invite your friends!
