FAR AWAY FROM THE HECTIC WORLD? Well, not far away at all, but is it hidden? Absolutely! Our newest destination Aulanko Privacy is located in its solemn solitude on a 100-hectare conservation area in Sibelius Forest on the shore of Lake Aulangonjärvi just a one-hour drive away from Finland’s large cities. Come and experience the peaceful stillness of the wilderness and have meetings, go fishing, or go hiking or camping in the nearby Aulangonjärvi Trail. There are no neighbours, granting Aulanko Privacy’s absolute privacy!
AULANKO PRIVACY’S stunning and atmospheric location in the wilderness is only 9 kilometres from the city centre of Hämeenlinna, 110 kilometres from Helsinki and 80 kilometres form Tampere. The unique location on the Lake Aulangonjärvi’s shore in complete solitude without any neighbours offers an exceptionally private and close to nature destination for our privacy-, nature- and peace-loving customers. The robust Aulanko’s watchtower on the opposite shore emphasizes Aulanko Privacy’s exceptional location in Aulanko’s national scenery.
Aulanko Privacy is our only destination we rent mainly during summer from the end of April to halfway through October since the destination does not have a regular grid electricity. Aulanko Privacy is not heated upon arrival. Preheating and other preparations can be ordered separately for an extra fee if the customer is not interested in atmospheric experiences such as lighting up the fireplace when arriving.
PLEASE NOTICE that if you are looking for a winter destination with a true wilderness experience, we will plow the road in winter and preheat Aulanko Privacy for an extra fee. While Aulanko Privacy does not have all modern comforts, it has been renovated with the maximum ease of stay in mind. Lighting and TV works with natural solar power and the stove and oven use gas. Heating is arranged with Aulanko Privacy’s gorgeous open fireplace and an atmospheric masonry heater. Extra heating can be arranged with a separate gas heater if needed.
Please notice that the 1,5-kilometre forest road leading to Aulanko Privacy is not suitable for cars with a low ride height. Naturally you can still easily reach the destination with a ground clearance of any ordinary car.
