Boat & Bikes

Many of you have inquiried for a boat to rent during your stay at Lillan. Now you can!

At the end of the Strandvägen, in the beginning of Gropshagsvägen, you’ll find this sweet little boat to go explore the nearby archipelago. Ask for keys preferably before you start your stay at Lillan ☀️

These excellent bikes can be found by Ruukin Sauna. They belong to Carfield chain so you can rent the bikes from one station and leave them to another. Handy, don’t you think? Also available in children sizes!

Wonderful way to explore Kimito Islands. Did you know you can take a bike to a ferry here for free?

And as you have a bike renting time, don’t miss Ruukin sauna, it’s wonderful food, sauna or ice cream that is so delicious words are not enough ❤ Or taste the great coffees Kyösti serves you. My favourite is Latte Macchiato, how about yours?

Ps. If you want to take your toddlers to a bike ride, you can! Just contact Ville Laitinen / NaturEffect and he’ll rent you this convertible 🙂 Or book directly from here.

Visited Ruukin Sauna


I had the honor to visit historic, newly renovated Ruukin Sauna this summer, invited by sauna hostess Henna Heinänen. What a true luxury!

The dressing room is roomy and full of light, its high ceiling and old details lovely.


Light and soft hammam towels are ready in line at the old drying line waiting to be wrapped around you.

The shower room is quite explicit. Stone on the wall changes colour as the water hits it, making the room change its outlook. Wonderful waterfall showers give soft, refreshing wash.


And the sauna then! Roomy benches with high level of carpentry. Non-direct light. Stove is the best there is, IKI-stove. Could not get any better than this.


After long sauna it is wonderful to have some glasses of water – or some other refreshments, to that matter.


I am very proud to have Ruukin sauna as cooperation partner to Lillan!

Ruukinsauna!

Since Lillan lacks its own sauna, I’m more than pleased to tell you about cooperation with Ruukinsauna, located merely 300m from Lillan to the old park of Dalsbruk.


This historical place is now totally renovated and will open 24th of June. Amazing place to enjoy and to relax in sauna, to have great buffet breakfast or to pop by for a coffee – or even to peak sauna’s own museum and little shop!
And, of course, Lillaneers get their own extra spark for this experience. If you are interested, I’d love to tell you more!
