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.
