Program

Friluftsliv Day: An outdoor day around the island to learn about nature, gather berries and mushrooms, fish, build a shelter and light the fire to prepare the meal gleaned in the forest and in the lake.

Riisitunturi National Park: For this day, you will go up to fully measure the extent of the Finnish taiga. Tunuri means rounded mountain: the climb is so smooth and gives us time to observe the fauna and flora present in the park.

Hossa National Park: Two days of canoeing in autonomy to cross the recently created Hossa National Park. In the evening, bivouac in one of the many fire places in the park. You will prepare the fire caught fish during the day. Along the water you will discover the rich history of Hossa and its region.

Oulanka National Park: A day of hiking on the famous Kahrunkierros (Bear Trail) which overlooks the Kitkajoki River and crosses it through suspension bridges. The river is full of laces, punctuated by rapids and impassable waterfalls.

Iivaara: This morning, you will leave by boat from our chalet to join the start of the day's hike. Iivaara is a small mountain near the Russian border whose summit rises to 470 meters above sea level! On the route, you will cross three different forest environments: in one of them is a pretty beautiful shelter.
