Sauna Island Experience, Tampere

We travel in a group to an island where we are spending several hours, eating outside or on board, having sauna and outdoor activities. The ship crew will guide us during the whole trip. Our Day trip will start from the Mustalahti harbour.

We will reach the Peronsaari Island after 1,5 hours boat ride. During the ride though Finnish lake archipelago we will be served traditional fish soup on board.

Sauna Island, MS NottbeckOnce we have arrived to the island we will be divided in several groups. “Axe team” is supposed to make firewood for the sauna and outdoor oven/fire. Other activities are preparing thin pancake resembling crapes – of course outside. Sausage frying belongs as well in the Finnish tradition. We will also have some popular plays – maybe even before preparing our finger food. Popular games are: dart, kind of skittles (mölkky), petanque.
Maybe we will also help the host of the island to heat the sauna and carry water from the lake in to the sauna (the lake is our only  shower). In to the sauna we go in groups of max 10 persons. We prefer using swimming suites, even in the Finnish tradition we don’t do it.

The ship crew may offer a nice moment of community singing accompanied by their accordion – the Finnish traditional instrument.
