Located in eastern Finland, only a few hours away from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport, Holiday Village Kuus-Hukkala offers rental cottages in a breathtaking lakeside location. Scan Magazine spoke to sales and marketing executive Pia Hindell, about what makes it a must-try destination this summer.
Imagine spending your holiday in perfect solitude, by a lake that is crystal clear, its water pure enough to be drinkable. Holiday Village Kuus-Hukkala offers rental cottages that come with their own sauna and a private beach by Lake Kolkonjärvi, fit for swimming, fishing, rowing and sunbathing. Peace and quiet is guaranteed, making the cottages a relaxing destination for everyone from solo travellers to couples and families.
There are also plenty of different activities you can try at Kuus-Hukkala, from hiking and cycling to berry and mushroom picking. Or why not drive a Lada Niva at the Off Road Safari? After a day of outdoor activities, you can rest and relax in the gentle heat of a traditional wood-heated sauna.
During the summer season, the Holiday Village’s restaurant is open every day, and it can cater to groups of different sizes throughout the year on request. Here, you can enjoy fresh local food and tasty dishes made from fish caught from their clean, clear lake.
