Traditional summer cabin atmosphere – in a hotel

You can enjoy the Finnish summer in traditional log saunas in VALO, where you can experience the authentic atmosphere of a Finnish cottage sauna. The saunas are crafted in Pielavesi by the log craftsman Jaakko Holma. The log saunas are located on the rooftop of VALO, providing a beautiful view of the Ruskeasuo allotment garden. It doesn’t get any better than a Finnish cottage sauna!

In VALO’s covered courtyard, summer rains won’t bother you, and Bistro ELO’s charcoal grill prepares the best meals. VALO’s cosy atmosphere feels like a summer cottage without mosquitoes, outhouses, or sofa beds. You can enjoy the evenings with sunsets on the VALO Rooftop Terrace, accompanied by refreshing drinks. Throughout the summer, a DJ performs live music on weekends.

In Helsinki, it’s nice to spend a relaxed summer day lounging on the beaches, at Linnanmäki amusement park, or Korkeasaari Zoo. Nature is also close in Helsinki, with several lush gardens, such as the over 10-kilometre-long forested green area of Helsinki Central Park, right next to VALO. The city’s seafront and nearby islands are easily accessible by ferry connections!

Getting around Helsinki by cycling or walking is easy, as the distances are relatively short. In addition, the Helsinki Region Transport (HSL) public transportation is very user-friendly and smooth, as all public transport can be used through the HSL application.
