Jun 6-13, 2020 in Savonlinna, Finland Enjoy 7-day Wellness Retreat focused on movement, self-development and Finnish nature and culture. Join this trip of a lifetime!
Said to be one of the most iconic of Finland's nature phenomenon, the Midnight Sun occurs in Finland due to the earth's axis which places regions above Arctic Circle in almost unending daylight for 70 consecutive days. Have you ever wanted to experience these kind of white summer nights? Have you ever dreamed of going for a vacation where you can combine culture of another country while taking care of yourself? I am excited to announce on the day of Finland's Independence Day that I will be hosting 6-months from now Midnight Sun - Finland Wellness Retreat June 6th-13th, 2020 where you get to experience the best of both worlds.
Experience the midnight sun in the land of thousands of lakes with this 7-day wellness retreat experience of a lifetime. Practice yoga and other forms of movement and mindset exercises with the views overlooking the lake surrounded by green leafy trees, or inside the boutique hotel of our stay. Indulge your senses with traditional Finnish foods, various local fish served from a boat. Lounge by the marvelous dining room, and enjoy the panoramic views from the gorgeous outdoor terrace. Explore the beauty of Finnish nature through hikes, swims in the lakes and breathtaking postcard views.
Midnight Sun Retreat welcomes both males and females into our family owned boutique hotel, Hotel Hospitz located by the biggest lake in Finland, Lake Saimaa, in the city of Savonlinna. Hotel is in the vicinity of the famous Olavinlinna Castle (see the picture above). Excursions include a trip to this breathtaking castle, a field trip to visit the famous Finnish Artist Johanna Oras Art Manor, enjoying the traditional Finnish summer experience - a lake house with sauna and swimming, hiking in pristine nature trails surrounded by gorgeous trees and calming water, and a day in Finland's capital, Helsinki. During our last days of the retreat we will enjoy the vibrant yet calming energy of Helsinki and stay at Hotel Helka which is related to the historic story of Hotel Hospitz as they both were founded by the oldest women's organizations in Finland (YWCA of Finland).
