Wild berries are available almost all summer – blueberries and cloudberries ripen first, while lingonberries and cranberries arrive in late summer and autumn. We will start along the hiking path, but soon you can experience walking in moss-covered ground. The guide will tell you about the basics of the fresh food ingredients which you can collect from pure nature.

Relaxing Aerial Yoga

Aerial yoga is a relaxing way to develop control of your body through traditional yoga poses done partly a hammock or with its help. The hammock can also support you while executing the poses.

In the summertime, we can also have the lessons in the lakeside nature.

Finnish Sauna

It's the Finnish innovation that the whole world knows. And now it's your chance to experience this uniquely Finnish activity! Enjoy spending time with your family and friends, as the heat of the sauna eases tired muscles and cleanses your skin. When spending time in a sauna, you should always listen to your body and do as you feel best. There is no such thing as "the right way" to bathe in the sauna, so don't be scared! For the first time, you could stay in for just a few minutes, depending on the temperature, and if you want to cool down, you can go outside – maybe even roll in the snow.
