VENUE: Tehtaan Hotelli sits on the property of the imposing former Högfors Ironworks, on the banks of the gushing Karjaa river. Finland’s largest foundry was a highly successful venture and its proprietors built homes reflecting their status. These exceptional historical buildings have been thoughtfully and respectfully converted for hospitality use.
Sola-Sali is Karkkila’s own yoga studio. The beautiful studio is situated in close proximity of the Factory Hotel, in the olf brick buildings of the Högfors foundry. The name reflects the sounds of the Karjaa river passing next to the studio and adding into the relaxing, peaceful and natural atmosphere of Sola-Sali studio.
ADDRESS: Bremerintie 2, 03600 Karkkila Högfors
HOW TO COME HERE: It takes an hour by bus or by car to come to Karkkila from Helsinki or Helsinki-Vantaa airport.
