...and to the theater, because that's where we, Rebecca & Sami, met during rehearsals for one of our productions.

Sweating, before deciding to found a lodge, the idea was born on a lake deep in the Finnish forest for a project that combines happiness, nature and pure relaxation in the middle of Berlin: FINNFLOAT©, the first Finnish sauna raft in Germany the Müggelsee, the largest lake in Berlin. FINNFLOAT© still exists and countless people have found moments of happiness and relaxation there. And after we brought a little bit of Finland to the German capital with FINNFLOAT© eight years ago*, the desire grew within us to create another place that combines happiness, nature and relaxation. We found a place for it in Kustavi, a small, great community in the middle of the Finnish archipelago. ​


Since the beginning of 2022, a place has been created again, the idea of ​​which is to inspire our and your ideas. A place that invites you to relax, that gives you strength, in a natural landscape that takes your breath away and in a country where you can feel life. This place is hidden on an island in Finland: The KALLIOKUMPU ISLAND LODGE. We quickly moved to Finland to experience this place of the heart with all our senses. And of course we are now bringing Berlin to the Finnish periphery. We are currently creating a space for ourselves and you, far away from mass tourism, where community comes to life and cultures meet to learn to be amazed again. ​


* FINNFLOAT© is now (... and we are quite proud of that ;-) one of the world's top saunas. In 2022, Sauna from Finland FINNFLOAT© was the first public sauna in Germany to be certified as an authentic Finnish sauna experience.

"We are looking for places that inspire our imagination. Places that speak to us and give us strength. Places that relax and unwind. Places where we feel life and which at the same time take our breath away. PLACES OF HAPPINESS!"

Rebecca & Sami
