Lehmonkärki Resort is a collection of stylish villas and cottages situated on the shore of Lake Päijänne in the Finnish town of Asikkala. Surrounded by a dense pine forest, all accommodations feature private saunas, ensuite hot tubs, and panoramic views of the lake. For a truly unique experience, design lovers can stay in the resort’s exclusive HAASI mirror houses; perched directly on the water’s edge, these accommodations feature one-way mirror walls for unobstructed views of the natural landscape with maximum privacy.
Embracing the important role that saunas play in Finnish culture, the resort is teeming with different kinds of hot-air baths, from smoke saunas to igloo saunas and traditional beach saunas. Guests can continue their foray into wellness with a relaxing massage or sample the local craft beer or wine at evening tasting sessions.
Aside from Lehmonkärki’s dedicated Sauna World, travellers to this outstanding lakeside resort will also have the benefit of the magnificent natural landscape that surrounds it. Book a guided tour of Päijänne National Park or wander its many footpaths by yourself, admiring giant spruces as you go. Glide across placid Lake Päijänne on an SUP board, following the curves of its shoreline and exploring its many coves.
Lehmonkärki Resort is fantastic for travellers looking to unwind and discover rural Finland.
