Dock and Lake Päijänne

Experience the beauty of Finnish nature

Nature in Finland, especially in Nukula, touches you. The lake can be felt in many different ways in addition to swimming; it is also a source of food. The surrounding hills and protected area of Haukkavuori is 100 meters above the water level of Päijänne and 200 meters above sea level hosting a wild forest and mixed animal population. The trees in Haukkavuori are approximately 400 years old. Walking the many meandering trails is a magnificent experience, with each step creating an enchanting journey. Your challenge at Nukula is to make every moment matter – embrace the unknown, do not be afraid!

“We still talk about the dry toilet. It was a bit of surprise at the begining since we are use to the normal flushing toilet, but it’s very clean and comfortable! Actually in terms of the smell, I think it’s even beter than our toilet here! We are very amazed by it.”
