Sensations provided by nature
Each cottage has its own rowing boat, by which you can explore the environment in the lake. All ponds have clear water and are full of fish and cottage owners can enjoy fish meals throughout the year. In winter time you can go ice-fishing.
All cabins (excluding Koivumäki) have a private beach, so you can take a dip in the water at any time. All cottages have also piers. During the winter season ice swimming is possible in each cottage (a hole in the ice to be ordered in advance).
The forests are made for hiking and jogging, all year long. All of the cottages have a map of the nearby area. There are also few geocaches nearby. In the winter time, if the snow situation is sufficient, the ski enthusiasts can enjoy trails in a very varied terrain. Natural offerings for lovers of berry and mushroom picking are great. Also hunting is possible if agreed in advance.
