BBQ and Sauna Night in a traditional Finnish cottage by the sea

I experienced the BBQ and Sauna Night traditional Finnish cottage by the sea and it was simply amazing! We started out by doing a BBQ -with lots of beer ;) and enjoying the view of the sea from the cottage. After the BBQ and chillaxing, it’s time for a nice sauna- so it’s Finnish tradition to do a sauna and then jump into the sea and repeat it again. Definitely something different from what I’ve experienced before. Not only we get to enjoy an awesome BBQ meal, the sauna helps blood circulation and jumping into the sea almost immediately helps remove dead skin. Not only a relaxing experience, but a healthy one too. -mariane, Malaysia

BBQ and Sauna Night in a traditional Finnish cottage by the sea

Going to a cottage by the sea is perhaps the best way to relax, unwind and enjoy the fleeting summer days in Finland. And I can't imagine who I'd rather do it with than Unna and Joonas who are both so much fun to be around.
