Long dinner on the open sea at Kallbådan Lighthouse
The impressive Kallbåda lighthouse is located on a rocky islet in the middle of the open sea in the culturally and naturally rich area of Porkkala. A visit to the lighthouse is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that provides a stunning setting for corporate and private events. A visit to the lighthouse is truly a rare experience, as due to its surrounding seal protectorate, it is not allowed to go ashore without permission. The Kallbådan lighthouse offers a unique atmosphere and excellent premises for board meetings, important customer events, or team building.
Kallbåda Lighthouse will be renovated during the 2022 season when it will be out of service. But welcome back in 2023!

Wäinölä is a unique venue located in the middle of the forest, in the armpit of Nuuksio National Park, and less than 40 kilometres from the Helsinki airport and the Helsinki city centre.
