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.
