Winter wonderland beside Helsinki

Even though winter is not that white in Helsinki, it usually is at Hawkhill. We get just a bit more snow and its colder so usually our guests are surprised when they arrive! We are perfectly located only 45min from Helsinki Airport and midtown Helsinki.

Haukkamäellä on tarlvella todella paljon tekemistä. Vaikka Helsingissä näyttää harmaalta ja lumettomalta, on monesti Nuuksion laidalla vain tunnin päässä talvinen tunnelma ja paljon tekemistä lumisessa metsässä ja jäällä!

Ice swimming experiment

Experienced ice swimmer will tell you about the health benefits and relaxing effects of ice swimming. She will then guide you how to do your first ice swimming experiment. You get to dip in to the black water in the lake and experience the exhilaration of ice swimming and then go warm up in the heat of the Finnish sauna.

Ice sculpting class

The ice sculpting class takes place on your cottages yard. An ice sculpting professional will teach you the basic tools and techniques of ice sculpting. After this you are divided into 1-4 person groups and you get your own block of ice and get to sculpt the figures of your choosing. This might sound hard, but the results are impressive even for beginners as seen in the picture!
