Rantasauna Day (Lakeside Sauna Day) is a new event in Tommolansalmi and in the Mikkeli area. During that day we want to celebrate Finnish sauna culture and invite everyone who is interested in wellness, leisure and sauna culture to enjoy sauna culture for free.
The municipalities in the Mikkeli area are involved in the event.
In Tommolansalmi you can rent two saunas for free: an electrically heated beach sauna and a wood-heated beach sauna. Sauna is free and sauna time is always one hour. Both saunas are also ideal for families with children, as there is a shallow, child friendly sandy beach in front of the saunas.
We will release more information about the program of the day later this summer.
The Outdoor Association of Finland (Suomen Latu) challenges everybody to sleep night outdoors in September. The purpose of the day is to enjoy the wildlife and everybody's right to sleep outdoors. A person may sleep outdoors in a national park, at a campsite or even in the backyard.
We respond to the challenge by offering the opportunity to come and camp in the tent for free.
So take your friends or family and come and experience a free, unbridled night at Lake Korpijärvi!
We will publish the actual day and the timetable later this year.
And there is no need to worry about rain or bold weather - our big barbecue huts offer the opportunity to warm up near the fire during the night. Our restaurant is also open until late at night. You can even warm up on our terrace with hot drinks and beverages!
Every week in Tommolansalmi is a rowing trip day with a big boat (called church boat). The trip lasts for about a couple of hours. Our professional rowers take camping guests along for free, even if you have no prior rowing experience. The boat has room for just four passengers though, in addition to the professional rowers, so please book the rowing trip in advance via our customer service.
NB! If you wish to go on a rowing trip with a larger company of friends, book a big boat of your own for a rental fee (also via our customer service).
NB! Keep an eye on weather forecasts – bad weather means cancelled rowing trips!
