Nuuksio forest lodges and saunas

Natura Viva also offers two genuine forest lodges for rent. These authentic loggers’ cabins, Oravankolo and Tikankolo, also include separate sauna buildings – book a cabin and a sauna experience to your group and follow the original trails of the forest-workers of the 1950s.

Both lodges can accommodate six people in very authentic conditions and of course are situated on lake shores. How else would one cool and wash up after the sauna than to jump in to the lake? As the lodges and saunas are available for rent troughout the year, a winter sauna is also a very recommendable experience. The bravest ones can even jump in the snow or carve a hole in the frozen lake ice and dip in the icy water in-between. This is actually something a lot of Finns do voluntarely during the winter season – it's good for the skin and blood circulation, they say!

Book a lodge and feel the real Suomi-sauna vibes!
