To truly experience Finland, you have to get out of the city. That is why Finns head to their cottages both winter and summer, and so should you! The winter brings its own unique activities to cottage life such as skiing, ice-swimming, sledding - all in the beautiful background of a blanket of snow and ice as far as the eye can see.
