Happiness is... in nature
Nature is one of the main themes of the Happiness Masterclass. The close connection to nature is also one of the primary factors contributing to the everyday happiness of Finns. Scientific studies have shown that being in natural environments can reduce stress, improve mood, and enhance mental well-being. In Eastern Finland and Lakeland, you'll find many uniquely Finnish nature-inspired things to do and places to visit. Go bear-watching, visit one of the many national parks, try a water activity, or admire the inspiring national landscape of Koli – you won't run out of things to try!
