Going on a family holiday to Finland with kids is a breeze. In the lake district of Saimaa, there’s no need for strict schedules; there’s just the peace of the countryside and plenty of space to run around.
A log cabin by the shoreline – ideal for children
Imagine; you have a summer cabin in the woods all to yourself and your family, a private sauna, a private jetty, and private rowing boat to go with it. In the outhouse there’s games, a football, badminton rackets and darts. There’s trees to swing from and boulders to climb on, the blue lakes of Saimaa to swim in and sandy beaches to play on. The children play safely in the yard while you enjoy an ice cream from a hammock strung up between a pair of pines.
The sun is shining as the kids run and shout and play outside, instead of being frustrated and cooped up. On holiday in Finland, their yells don’t bother anyone as there’s really nobody around; only the birds and red squirrels in the tree branches.
