Weekend offer

Experience a weekend of natural living in Malmbacka. Challenge yourself to a stay without electricity or running water in a forest cabin – can you handle it?

A weekend costs 70 € / person.

Chop wood in the woodshed for heating. Prepare food on the open barbecue. When darkness falls use lanterns or torches. Take the opportunity to relax in a wood sauna. Be quiet if you go hiking and you could see elk, deer, other wild animals, and birds. Summer is wonderfully beautiful, and you can enjoy the delights of the forest such as berries and mushrooms. On clear autumn, winter and spring nights you can absorb yourself in the beautiful starry sky and enjoy the clean and fresh air.

In Malmbacka you also have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with the charcoal production  that was ever-present from the 17th to early 20th centuries - our local industry needed lots of charcoal. You can even  take a trip to Fiskars to explore the old ironworks.

Starry Night

You will have a superb experience at  Malmbacka when the moon is up and the stars are sparkling.

The night sky is very clearly visible above Malmbacka. Watching the night sky by the campfire is truly cozy.

You can stay one night or more.

It is good to bring a star map / book to help you identify the stars you see.


Animals in nature.

During spring wild animals are very active at our place. You can stay overnight here and see a lot of wild animals. Among the animals you may spot are moose, deer, lynx and lots of different birds. You can relax listening to the beautiful bird song. Animals may show in the charcoal forest or along the windy country roads, preferably in early morning and at twilight. We can tell you where the animals often are, but we cannot guarantee that they will be there when you want to see them, so you have to take a chance. We still think it is worth a try to have a great experience. Please see our price list for booking an overnight stay.
