The popular Nolla cabin offers sustainable travelling experiences again this summer. Participate in a competition and win a night at Vallisaari. Nolla cabin is a prototype of a sustainable summer cottage, developed by Neste. The design of the Nolla cabin, envisioned by Robin Falck, is focused on minimizing CO2 emissions. Neste introduced the cabin last summer and thanks to its overwhelming popularity, it has now returned to Vallisaari.


Cabin life without a trace

The Nolla cabin illustrates how self-sufficiency and the use of renewable energy sources with minimal CO2 emissions can be achieved by modern solutions. The cabin is fully fossil-free and liberated from most modern amenities. The minimalistic yet elegant interior is provided by Neste's partner Vepsäläinen.

Vallisaari and Lidö - The home islands of the Nolla cabins

Vallisaari is one of the most diverse areas in the archipelago of Helsinki. Having been idle for a long time and dominated by butterflies, Vallisaari was opened to the public in 2016. Just a 15-minute boat ride away from the Market Square in Helsinki, the island offers an experience of an urban cottage in virtually pristine nature.
As part of Neste's Zero Island project, Lidö Island got its own Nolla cabin this summer. The aim of the Zero Island project is to show that a fossil-free future can be achieved with solutions already available. Lidö, located in the Stockholm archipelago, has undergone a change towards fossil neutrality last year. The grand opening of the island took place in mid-June.
