Now is your chance to enjoy a true Finnish "mökki" experience. You will be picked up from Turku or Naantali around 06.00pm before we will head together to a Finnish grocery store to explore the beloved BBQ and beverage selection. After picking up the meal ingredients (at own cost) of the evening we will take 30-minute drive to our family cottage by the sea. Along the way we will enjoy some stunning views from the archipelago bridges.
Upon arrival we will introduce the cottage and its surroundings to you and you are welcome to use the facilities e.g. BBQ, games and fishing rods as you please. Together we will start the BBQ and prepare a feast! We will enjoy the meal on a terrace with a view over the sea.
After the meal it is sauna time so remember to bring your swimming suits (Finns do it naked though, just sayin'). After enjoying the warm "löyly" steam time the brave hearted have the chance to dip in the Baltic Sea! We promise the return to "löyly" and the feeling on your skin will be exquisite! This is the true way of Finnish relaxation.
After sauna time you will be transported back to your hotel either in Naantali or Turku around 11.00pm and we will say good bye for now.
