Back to the Nature – Adventure

During the nature excursion we will introduce you the lake, river and sea basics of Southeast Finland. Only 1,5 hours from Helsinki Airport.

Activities / Excursions

During the week there is a wide range of activities and relaxations.

In the lake district you will experience Repovesi National Park, go hiking in a forest and paddling by gigantic canoes. Lunch in the nature around campfire is one of highlights of the day. On the following day the group will go on a reindeer feeding trip.

In the river area you will enjoy an exciting whitewater rafting tour and spend a moment panning for gold in the river. The day will be filled of pure nature enjoyment and good meals.
The next day takes you to visit The Valkmusa National Park. The park is best known as a fine swamp area.

By the sea we will take a boat ride to a unique island for a one night accommodation. A small walking tour in a forest will teach you secrets of the local nature. A nice dinner will end the day. On the day after you may enjoy guided activities; fishing on the boat or on shore and treasure hunting on the island. Or you may just relax and enjoy the beautiful nature.

In addition, everyone will have the opportunity to relax in the sauna and to swim in our clear waters every day.
