What are we going to do

Spend a day with us at our cottage on an island at Lake Päijänne. We take a boat ride from harbour to the island Vuoritsalo because there isn't any roads. The island is 500 hectares, the highest point of island is 90 meters over lake Päijänne. There's wildlife and beutiful unique nature. We can pick wildberries, go hiking, fishing and we can chop some firewood and carry water from the lake to the Sauna because there isn't running water. Then we go to Sauna and swim in lake Päijänne. We set a fire and cook outside by the fire. If it's raining we can cook inside because the cottage is very big inside.

About Virpi - the Doer

Finnish nature and life at summer cottage are very unique. We want to share this with guests who don't have chance to experience this kind of nature back at home. Beautiful view over Lake Päijänne, the Vuoritsalo island and nordic nights are amazing experiences.
