Wilderness Tour

"The smaller the group, the bigger the experience, as listening to the woods is better in silence." Our Wilderness Tour gives you the chance to really get into the Wild. We will take a short walk to a lookout tower or the flowing rivers and lakes. It is also a good chance to try and spot some elusive wildlife: reindeer, moose and other animals can be seen if you stay quiet.

Roadtrip from Helsinki to Lapland, the Winter Wonderland

Discover Real Finland from end-to-end: 10-14 days through the heart of Finland from Helsinki to Lapland, via the Finnish Lakeland. Experience Finland in our traditional houses and cottages, share experiences with Finnish people, savour Finnish cuisine and enjoy great wintertime outdoor activities. The My Finland travel agency will organise your stay in Finland. With the help of our local partners, we offer a broad range of activities and visits for a truly unforgettable stay.

ATV Safaris

Through the forests and hills and across slopes, our ATV routes are planned according to your experience and skills. Every participant drives their own ATV, and you will be equipped with all necessary equipment: helmet, outdoor clothing, gloves and rubber boots. You can choose an intensive 1-hour safari or a longer 2-hour safari, which includes a coffee break at the viewpoint hut.

Ahvenlampi Recreational Fishing Area

Located right next to the center of fell resort Luosto, Ahvenlampi is an easily accessible and magnificent fishing spot for the whole family. Ahvenlampi lives up to its name as your daily catch can include perch (ahven in Finnish), rainbow trout and white fish. You can enjoy your freshly caught fish or a nice picnic by open fire at the shelter by the pond. Winter months are popular for ice fishing where as summertime is suitable for angling, fly fishing and lure fishing alike. Fishing here requires a permit, more information from Visitor Centre Naava and local service providers.

Winter Dry Fly Fishing

Dry fly fishing for trout and grayling in the winter time is truly a culmination point for a fly fisher. Big winter stoneflies hatch in April here in Kuhmo, and those big graylings and brown trouts are eating them like mad! This is definitely the best time of the year if you want to catch nice dry fly fish. There are no words to describe the feeling when you catch a nice brown trout or grayling with a dry fly in the middle of snowy river banks.

One Hour Reindeer Safari in the Snowy Wilderness

Join us for an exciting reindeer safari! Sit comfortably in a reindeer drawn sleigh, enjoy the Lappish nature, take photos of the snow cover forests and untouched wilderness around you and listen to the sounds of the reindeer walking on the snow. The reindeer herders have prepared us some coffee with a cinnamon bun on a campfire and will share stories of reindeer husbandry in Lapland.

Gulf of Finland National Park

In spring huge flocks of arctic geese and waterfowl pass through these waters on their way northeast, creating an amazing natural spectacle. In the summer the area's old fishing villages come to life, and visitors can hear tall tales of trading, smuggling and wartime exploits from days gone by.

Fishing

The tumbling waters of the Kuusaankoski rapids are perfect for those in pursuit of lake trout. Pike, perch, whitefish and pike-perch also invite fishermen to take up the challenge… Reflection, fragrances and feelings are a key part of an enjoyable fishing experience. The serenity of ice-hole fishing on a crisp winter day is also a golden experience! But fishing in the foaming rapids is something you'll never forget.

Repovesi National Park

Repovesi's rugged forests are dotted with blue lakes and ponds. The park offers accessible adventures for everyone. Its hills and cliffs challenge keen hikers and climbers. Highlights for families include a hanging bridge, the hand-operated Fox's Ferry, cosy Lappstyle huts for rent, and fine views over the treetops from the park's high spots. Repovesi is just a couple of hours from Helsinki, but when you sit round a campfire listening to the eerie calls of red-throated divers echoing over the lake the city feels a million miles away.
