Day 1 Forest - Foraging for forests fruits
Research tells us about the many benefits of immersing ourselves in nature and spending time in the forest.
More than 70 per cent of Finland is covered in forest, making it the world’s most forested country. Its forests are large, well cared for and peaceful places for everyone to enjoy.
Finnish people place great importance on their freedom to roam, which ensures that everyone can wander, pick berries and mushrooms, fish and camp in the forests for free.
Enjoy a peaceful wander in the forest, allowing it to fill you with peace and silence. Take a little break and lay down on the moss to relax. It will reduce your blood pressure and give you peace of both mind and body.
You can pick herbs, berries and mushrooms - the fresh, clean and powerful fruits of the forest.
Day 2 Island- Boat trip and Traditional Finnish Sauna
Finland is also the land of lakes and islands; there are more than 180,000 lakes and almost as many islands.
Cottage life is an important part of Finnish culture and the best way to experience it is to spend time by the water, ideally on an island.
Cottage life is leisurely; it enables you to experience peace, silence and be surrounded by nature. At their summer cottages, Finnish people love to fish, row, go to the sauna and swim.
Saunas are the perfect place to relax and purify body and mind.
Day 3 Island- Kayaking, Fishing and herbal bath
Kayaking will enable you to get closer to nature and see the coastline from an entirely new perspective. Feel the gentle movements of the waves and enjoy the opportunity to get closer to birds and animals (because there’s no motor so you won’t make a sound as you approach).
Kayaking takes place in the Bothnian Sea National Park, an absolutely stunning environment. There’s a wide variety of wildlife, as well as lush forests, rocky shorelines, smooth rock islets and small sandy beaches.
Smoked fish is something that Finns love to eat and the waterways are crystal clear, ensuring that the fish you catch for supper is fresh, healthy and delicious.
Under the midnight sun, you can see nature in all its glory around the clock - a truly magical experience!
Day 4 Nordic Walking, wildherb class and herbal sauna
Beautiful Nordic nature provides us with versatile and healthy food.
Many common plants can make a delicious and healthy addition to your meals. Wild herbs have been used for their medicinal benefits through the centuries.
They’re also used in the sauna to enhance the experience and benefit your skin.
You can also harness the power of herbs in the sauna, making your sauna experience even more authentic and effective.
