Outdoor combi

A great combination of different outdoor activities and experiences surrounded by beautiful Finnish nature. In the wilderness, you can enjoy landscape though the woods and other views in a adventure railway; experience hiking in a protected Finnish bog area; camp in the tents next to the river; canoe down the wilderness river; go cycling on the forest’s sand roads; go kayaking on the lake, stay overnight in tentsiles and go fishing on the islands.

During your trip, you can also explore Finnish culture. Your hotel and its furnishings have been designed by the most famous architecht in Finland, Alvar Aalto. In our woods, you will see and hear more about the different periods in the history of our forests – the adventure railway is one part of this. On the island, around the lake you can see typical Finnish summer houses and live in one, like Finnish people do.

During this trip, you can relax in our pure and peaceful natural environment. The forest gives you therapy in many ways. You will never forget these magical Nordic nights, which are accompanied by the sound of traditional shamanism drumming. We will cook our food on an open fire and use pure, wild food, including berries, herbs, fish, game and mushrooms. The Finnish sauna is a healthy, unique and authentic experience.

This trip is extremely environmental-friendly and leaves no impact on the natural environment. All of the activities are powered by us humans; there is no use of motors or gasolines. In between the different activities, there are no transfers by car or any other motor vehicles. Most of the food is made on an open fire using wild or local ingredients.
