Forests of Finland. 🌲

Did you know that 71,6% of the whole area of Finland is covered by forest?

We Finns love our forests and we tend to spend a lot of time roaming in them. There's even a saying in Finnish that spending 1 hour per day in forest makes you feel good, and it is totally true!

Studies show that the longer you spend time in a forest the better, but even 20 minutes is enough to notice a change in your spirit.

What to do in a forest then? You have a lot of options but one of Finns favorite hobbies is mushroom picking. Treasures like this big bolete below you only find with experience and it's a good idea to have a guide with you. While searching for mushrooms you might also find berries.

The way to Finnish forest starts at https://skafur-tour.fi

Linnansaari National Park consists of hundreds of islands and islets. It is the heart of the lake district and an optimal location for observing wildlife such as ringed seals and ospreys. You can move on the waters of Saimaa by an old-fashioned wooden motor boat or by kayak or canoe, in near waters also by rowing or stand-up paddling. You can choose to stay in a luxurious, brand new hotel, in a modern hillside cabin or in a typical Finnish summer cottage. Why wouldn't you visit the unique, recently opened Järvisydän lake spa built inside rock or the amazing cafeteria of Hakoapaja built out of snag found in the bottom of the lake next to it? All these as you like you can get from Skafur-Tour. to start with, take a look at this one: https://skafur-tour.fi/national-park-tour-lakes-linnansaaari-2days/

SUMMER SEASON IN FINLAND! Collect a group and take a wild-food masterclass in Central Finland. In May-June the theme is herbs, later in summer berries and in the autumn mushrooms. Each season fishing is part of the course. You will not only learn, how to prepare wild-food but also get recipes to take with you. Let Minna and Pasi host you and pamper you with pure Finnish food and sauna each evening.
Note! We also have a 3-night version for individual travelers with bus transfers from Helsinki included.
