Cottage Life in Finland: Great Ways to Enjoy Nature
Have you ever asked a Finn where he or she would celebrate the midsummer fest? Most of them would reply: “in a summer cottage”. Did you know that Finland counts over half a million privately owned cottages and leisure houses in the country of 5 million inhabitants?
For Finns, the cottages and leisure houses are getaways from the hectic lives. Very often located by a lake or a river, and off-the-beaten path, cottages offer a great dive into one of the most important part of Finnish culture: enjoying nature.
The cottage life is all about going back to the roots and enjoy simple pleasures like cooking fresh fish on open fire, taking a swim in the lake after wooden-heated sauna or picking up berries.
Have You Ever Heard Silence?
The first and most overwhelming feeling you will get when staying at a cottage in the middle of nature is silence. Have you ever heard it?
