Activities

Relax and enjoy the nature. If you want to try some fishing, there is a fishing hole in the Igloo under the carpet. Don’t tighten the hatch too much when you close it again. The fishing rod is in the small hatch on the right side when you enter the igloo. 

Wintertime you will get snowshoes and/or kick sleds at your disposal. When there is ice on the sea, ask your guide where it is safe to walk. 

We will start our snowmobile tours in late January. A fantastic opportunity to join a snowmobile tour. After the 3 hour tour go to the private sauna and relax at the igloo afterwards. Price: 420€/couple Including lunch and sauna. The snowmobile tour starts at 10:00. 

In January we can offer a floating suit experience for a short while until the ice gets too thick. After the floating suite experience the private sauna is yours to relax in. Price: 150€/couple. Including ice floating experience and sauna. 

Please contact us before checkin if you want to experience a snowmobile tour. 

Where to eat

If you are not interested in cooking your own food there are some alternatives ”close by”. Take the kick sleds and kick yourself east to Sipoon ranta. There you find a lovely Italian restaurant called Portside Trattoria. https://en.portsidetrattoria.fi. 

If you go west over the ice you find the Gumbo kiosk with good burgers https://gumbokiosk.fi. And the pizza place Bistro burken: https://www.burken.fi.

A bit further from the kiosk you find the fantastic bistro and art exhibition Konst och Form, https://konstoform.fi.

Wintertime meeting point

The adress for the meeting point is Katrineholmintie 96. Be aware that most of the navigators will guide you 100 meters too short, so continue 100 meters from the curve and you see a green gate and a postbox with the number 96 on it. You probably also see a sign: Burn Out City Events. Here you turn left and continue down to the property. If you don´t have 4 wheel drive it can be wise to leave the car up on the hill. 

Once on the property you will be greeted by Kenneth that will guide you further. 

Sauna

In wintertime you can rent our private wood heated seaside sauna for an extra fee of 100€. There is also a hole in the ice for taking a dip in the cold water. If you want to book the sauna please mention it before you arrive. We will charge your credit card for the sauna when you arrive.

Have fun and enjoy your stay!
