Tuesday 19.05.2020Pre-conference event
9:00Bus to Herrankukkaro
9:45Welcome to Herrankukkaro
10:00–12:30A boat trip to the nearby island and the realm of the bootleg king during the period of the Finnish Prohibition. The trip will be made in a traditional fyke boat to the shores of the island Nimetön. We will visit the cave, which served as the hiding place for prohibited alcohol, taste some samples and listen to stories about the interesting bootlegging period. At the end of the trip, we will enjoy campfire coffee at the beach shelter.
12:30–14:00Lunch
14:00–16:00Herrankukkaro’s village smoke sauna has been built according to Finnish tradition and is intended for small groups. The sauna can accommodate up to 30 people. The steam of the village sauna is unique and individualistic – and like every hot, moist breath in a smoke sauna: always worth the experience.

The village smoke sauna is located in the same area as the heated baths of Kaislikko¬kypylä and the underground smoke sauna.
