Guided Nature Walks

Our guides will take you on safe hikes in the beautiful landscapes of Porosalmi. You can enjoy nature and fresh air while learning something new. A hike in the forest is calming, refreshing, and rejuvenating. It has been proven that being in nature contributes to your physical and mental wellbeing in many ways. You can choose from different themes. The guide will adjust the speed and length of the hike depending on the physical condition of the participants. Start your walk from Järvisydän or Porokylä. Book a guided walk from our sales office!

Golf - Relax and Recharge your Game - A Finnish Way

Our well-maintained 18-hole course opens right from the Hotel doors. Warm up your body before the game and balance afterwards with the latest wellbeing technology, a unique method available only in Finland. The treatment will activate your muscles and focus your mind. Since a golfer's skin faces health and aging problems more than usual, our signature Golfer's Facial is ideal for both men and women. Our Wellbeing Mentor and Golf Pro will give you useful ideas. A Finnish sauna will finalise your experience. The hotel kitchen is famous for its local food made in with seasonal inspirations.

Lapland Offline

After this digital detox you might beg us to keep your smart phones locked up forever... Torassieppi Winter Village sits on the edge of a large and quiet lake in the surroundings of a traditional reindeer farm and guesthouse. With its idyllic location, right next to Pallas-Ylläs National Park, whose bare-topped fells offer dramatic views and the cleanest air in world, Torassieppi has no light pollution either. All of these elements make it a prime spot for viewing the Northern Lights as well as for enjoying the best of what Lapland's wild nature has to offer.

Horseback Riding with Finnish Horses & Accommodation

Our peaceful and trustworthy Finnish horses will take you to the beautiful countryside. Trips can include a picnic or a swim with the horse after the ride, according to your wishes. In the training field you can try out horseback riding with an instructor. During the winter our horses are available for rides with a sleigh on the snow. For over 50 years we have provided accommodation in Naaranlahti and comfort in the peaceful and relaxing environment of Lake Puruvesi. The cottages, rooms and apartments are well-equipped with their own beach, a rowing boat, sauna as well as privacy.

Sauna Yoga

The sauna is traditionally considered to be a healing place in Finnish culture. See how the warmth relaxes your muscles and calms your mind. We will do some breathing exercises, easy and calm stretching together with some yoga asanas, and finally a relaxation. Maximum group size: 5 persons.

Slow Lakeland

Choose a program of your interest and deepen your understanding of Finnish nature, culture, traditions. The idea is that, over five-ten days, you do at least one relaxing thing and fill your body and mind with pure air and positive thoughts and you have left stresses of real life far behind you. Once you’ve spent a few days exploring… go off-line and slip into a meditative state!
