lumologo

Hi there!

Great to have you here! Are you perhaps looking for a peaceful place for spending a holiday? Right next to a lake, we have two comfortable cottages, where you can enjoy relaxing and peaceful days in beautiful nature. Deeper contact with the nature you can get in our Nature Bath (building in process) featuring a smoke sauna, outdoor baths and showers.

We are aiming for sustainable and nature-friendly tourism. Therefore, we prefer using natural materials and as little chemical as possible. In addition, our goal is that the use and upkeep of the cottages and bath area would have a minimal effect on the nature.

We want to preserve the Finnish culture and craftsmanship as well as nature. At the cottages and bath area you'll find many buildings and items that are hand-made from the traditional materials found from the nature.  In many areas you can see sheep taking care of our land, instead of machinery.

Just scroll down and read more! We hope you find what you are looking for and we will meet you soon!

Kindly, Reetta and Tuomas

welcome_ nature bath

Jouhkolan Lumo offers a special opportunity to really enjoy the surrounding peace and quiet the nature has to offer. In our Nature Bath you can feel the nature with all your senses and let your mind and body relax.  After sitting in the tender warmth of the smoke sauna, bathing in warm outdoor baths, washing yourself under the rainwater shower and dipping in the fresh waters of lake Tohmajärvi, you'll feel like a new person!

The bath area is built around our big smoke sauna using natural material, such as wood and stone,  and traditional Finnish building techniques as much as possible. The textiles used in the bath are made of natural fiber and for washing you can use natural cosmetics.  The baths and showers are located outdoors, which allows you to enjoy fresh air and the ever-changing feeling and sounds that depend a lot on the weather and the time of the year. Stop for a moment, and you can hear the swishing sound of the reed, the small waves of the lake hitting on the stones and the birds singing in the trees nearby.

The Nature Bath is usually open for groups by reservation, but occasional open-days are arranged, ask for more!

The creation of the actual bath area is now in process and before being able to enjoy the Nature Bath as a whole, you can try the relaxing effect of smoke sauna! At the moment, we sell smoke sauna packages for groups by a reservation.

The price of the smoke sauna package: 30 euros/ person (minimum charge 300 euros)

Includes: The private use of the smoke sauna area (a sauna, a dressing-room and a hut for dining), the heating-up of the sauna and the dressing room, the towels and natural soap, a meal served by a fire in the hut.
