Wild herb pampering in the Shade of the Forest

Take in with all your senses the magic of the Northern Central Finland forests. Stroll in the forest to pick up wild herbs full of aroma. Relax in a hot tub amidst the lust forest while listening to the whisper of leaves and enjoying the silence. Treat yourself with delicious country style dinner with a special local touch in a romantic manor and have a good night sleep surrounded by the peace and quiet of the forest. This is a true getaway from hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Arrival to Lakomäki Forest Manor. This 130 years old log manor is located in a peaceful area amidst untouched forests. Having accommodated in the manor, you will have an excursion around the place and a snack. Before leaving for a “wild herbs tour”, you will have a short introduction into the world of herbs, which will be picked up for a footbath and used as a sauna scent. In the sauna, we breathe in herbal aromas while relaxing feet in a self-made herbal footbath. After the sauna, you can have a dip in a hot or cold  tub and enjoy a refreshing drink. The dinner includes seasonal dishes made from local ingredients. The dinner is served in the manor. An overnight stay is arranged in small two persons chambers of the manor.

Next morning after the breakfast, you can either start your trip back home or take an additional programme day and join a guided tour to one of the oldest preserved areas in Southern Finland. Enjoy your time in the National park with its ancient history, mystical stories and 400 years old bark pines. The hiking route is about 3-6 km and is suitable for travellers of all ages.  During the tour, you will awaken all our senses while going through the forest, and enjoy a snack by the open fire. After the tour, we return to Lakomäki Forest Manor and relax for a while. If you, however, have enough energy, you can take part to heat up the Grandma’s Sauna and the hot tub together with the manor’s host or pick up wild herbs for the dinner together with the hostess. After relaxation in the sauna and the hot tub, you get to enjoy the dinner either in the manor or outdoors, in a summer kitchen.
