What you'll do
My summer village of Vihavuosi in Hauho, about an hour and a half north of Helsinki, has beautiful nature with lakes and forests and a lot to offer to people seeking harmony and inspiration. Its peaceful beauty and forest spirits have inspired Finnish poets and painters for centuries. In Hauho there are many original places to visit depending on your interests: old village road, view tour, church, local museum, flea market, pottery and a shop of wooden souvenirs. You are also invited to visit my summer cottage in Vihavuosi to experience things we Finns love to do in summertime including forest walk, sauna, swim and barbeque. The northern summer lasts from June to end August. I will be happy to create you a day with magic memories to cherish when back at home. Hauho is easy to access by car or by public transportation; first by train to Hämeenlinna and from there by bus to Hauho. Please note that buses are not running during summer weekends in order to sustain the magic and serenity of the place. It is also possible to plan a shorter day or a day with more activities in nature such as forest walk, healing forest activities, nature photographing, rowing boat, sauna and swim.
I am a friendly and easy-going globetrotter with a curious mind and deep love for Finnish nature and culture. I have made my career in creative industries and recently completed my studies of nature tourism. I am happy to share the true secrets of Finnishness with fellow travelers from all over the world in an inspiring way: a visit to my summer cottage and its neighborhood village, sauna and the beautiful nature of Finnish countryside. I believe that you can find the biggest secrets of life when you have time to listen to silence and look at small wonders of nature.
Transportation by my car from Hauho to Vihavuosi and back totaling 36 km.
