The paper focuses on leisure oriented mobile lifestyle between urban home and rural second home Finland. Helsinki metropolitan dwellers have the longest trips to second homes which is explained not merely by environ-mental but by historical, societal and social reasons as well. Second home related social mobility practices are dependent on cottage owners’ and users’ life phase and standard of second homes. Retiring baby boom generation is the largest and most active cottager group and after retirement the use of second homes in¬creases remarkably. The vast majority of second home owners and users travel the cottage trips by private cars and wish to spend at least as much time at rural second home as present
