Nearest pizzeria is also located at the center of Nastola. We may do some group orderings from the partyplace.


There is a wood heated sauna (50 meters away from the partyplace) next to the lake Salajärvi where you can wash your sins away.

Jacuzzi will be ordered too if enough participants.

Saunas do not have showers but there’s a wood heated boiler so your sins can be washed away with a warm water too.

There is a traditional shower (just one) on the partyplace too (warm water may not be guaranteed for everyone).

There will be no ice at the lake this time of the year so now you may try to take off your winter furrrrs.... <3
