Christmas Eve celebrations continue with an interlude of free time for guests to just take it easy in the morning; perhaps choosing to meander around the esker on their own, or to join a guided tour. A special Christmas porridge will be served at brunch. While enjoying brunch we will be able to listen to a broadcast of the traditional Declaration of Peace for Christmas from the city of Turku.

In the afternoon guests can partake in a traditional Finnish Christmas sauna by the lakeside, while enjoying the wonderous illumination provided by the multiple naturally crafted ice-lanterns. In the evening guests will gather together for a sip of eggnog followed by a splendid four-course dinner featuring a traditional Finnish Christmas ham.

Magical winter wonderland.
