FINNISH CHRISTMAS IN HIMOS COTTAGES
Spend a traditional Finnish Christmas in a holiday cottage with own sauna and fireplace. Decorate the Christmas tree at your cottage, enjoy generous tasty meals and relax. Experience the traditional smoke sauna bathing and be merry!
The best way to spend Christmas is with your loved ones. In December, just after the winter solstice the day light in Central Finland is short and evening falls early, a perfect excuse to let go of the day-to-day must-do list and just be. Relax, go for a stroll, light up a fireplace and cuddle up on the sofa with your favorite book.
