What are we going to do

The Finnish lake landscapes offer you a unique way to experience old traditions of the Finnish way of life. One of these traditions is washing classic rugs with the pure water of the lake. Washing the rugs is more than just cleansing them – it’s all about socializing, spending time in the beautiful nature and enjoying the company of friends or family.

The Finns wash their rugs with pine soap, which is an eco-friendly and organic product. The fresh, unique smell of pine soap of the clean rugs can
be sensed for a long time in the Finnish homes.

Imagine a warm, sunny day at the peaceful lake. While you’re experiencing the authentic Finnish lifestyle, you may also enjoy the day by cooling off at
the refreshing water. Did you know, that the lakes of Finland are one of the cleanest in the world? After you and your host are finished with the rugs,
we can stay relaxing at the lakeside, while listening the calming waves of the lake. As they say, nature does not hurry, yet everything’s accomplished.

Take bathing suite and towel with you!

Lovely experience! If you are looking for something different, if you want to meet local people, learn something about Finland and its culture, Noora's home it's that you are looking for! Marvellous family, great activities as cook Finnish recipes; play Finnish games, and superb experiences at their home and in the surrounding nature! Finland is forest and lakes, gastronomy, culture and sport, but specially Finland is their people, charming and openminded. Lets try to be a Finn during some hours in the amazing Lakeland! Kiitos Paljon!

You and your family are very nice. I felt like we were really welcomed. It depends on person but I like talking with you and having fun together.

Also, I did not expect that I could do outside activities. Making fire outside is what Finnish really do and I really like it. It would be awesome if we can grill
something.

About sauna, we can find sauna everywhere in Finland but that experience was great because we could dive into snow and relax at the terrace. That is what we can not do in hotels but I am wondering what could be something special in other seasons.

Anyway, I enjoyed a lot!

Thank you very much.

The salmon was extremely good! I learned the recipe of the salmon and it was good as I am interested in cooking. My father did it the same way at home and was very delicious!

It was a nice experience we have received during our visit. We got to know a lot about Finns and their traditions and the Scandinavian way of living.

It always seems unusual and strange, but with Noora you can understand that this is very comfortable and cosy way of living. Additionally, you can understand why! To my mind, this is because of the nature and population, that they get used to live far from the big cities and megapolis, so that they have more free time to be with their family, their friends and enjoy the life around them!

The experience met and even went above my expectations because we had great time at wonderful place. Participation in cooking was exciting and the food was delicious!

It was interesting to know about general lifestyle and daily life. To see Finnish home and nature. Also some interesting customs and traditions.

Overall feeling about Home Visit 5/5! I'd recommend this experience to other travellers.
