We set off from Mustalahti Harbour and arrive at Peronsaari after cruising for an hour and a half in a Finnish lakeland. The island has a wood-fired sauna, a few cooking stoves and an exotic atmosphere, as there is no electricity on the island.
You can heat your food over an open fire – or at least fry sausages. There’s also a big frying pan – if not two – under the roof, and gas for frying pancakes, for example. Of course, it’s easier if you take your own food from the catering service in thermal boxes. And, your own drinks – there are no on-board or on-island outlets.
TRADITIONAL SAUNA – NO ELECTRISITY – NO SHOWER
There are plenty of things to do on the island. The Island’s host is happy to help with the sauna and firewood. The nature trail is short enough (the island is so small) to fit into most people’s itineraries.
The sauna can be booked for three hours and it’s probably a good idea to split into groups according to the size of the group.
Equipment needed: outdoor clothing (according to the weather), towel, swimsuit, water bottle. Sausage can also be a good idea after the sauna – grilled over an open fire.
