What are we going to do

Embark on a unique journey into the heart of Finland's taiga forest with our exclusive wilderness tour in Nuuksio National Park. This immersive experience offers you the chance to dive into the crystal-clear waters of a secluded lake, home to a vibrant kingdom of perch. You'll explore the rich biodiversity, marvel at the resilient trees, and immerse yourself in the serene wilderness. This is a rare opportunity to experience nature in its purest form, far from the crowds.

Your adventure begins with a convenient pickup from your hotel or the airport. From there, we'll take a drive to secret places in Nuuksio National Park, located just outside Helsinki. Once there, we'll take a leisurely hike through the forest, where you'll learn about the intricate dance of life that unfolds in the taiga forest. Discover the magic of how birch and mountain-ash first colonize areas recently touched by forest fires or other phenomena, only to be challenged by the resilient pines, protected from flames by their shield-like bark. Witness the slow takeover by hardy and competitive spruce and aspen, and marvel at the clever adaptation of the black alder, growing in the lake with a snorkel-like bark, reaching for the abundant sunshine above the water. Learn and witness in your own eyes how the nature ecosystem and competition actually works.

Next, we'll arrive at a secluded, crystal-clear lake. Here, you'll have the opportunity to swim and dive, exploring the underwater kingdom of perch and witness the adaptions of different species in underwater wildlife. If you prefer to stay dry, you can relax by the lakeside, soak up the tranquil surroundings, and perhaps spot some birds, insects or even mammals. While sightings can't be guaranteed, the park is home to a variety of animals, so you will see at least something. If you've brought something to eat, you'll have time to enjoy your meal in this idyllic setting.

After a day filled with exploration and discovery, we'll drive you back to your hotel or the airport, wrapping up an unforgettable day of adventure in Finland's unspoiled wilderness. Experience the beauty of the taiga forest, delve into the secrets of its unique ecosystem, and enjoy a refreshing swim in a pristine lake on this exclusive tour.

About Paulus - the Doer

I born up in Finnish forest spending major part of my free time there and may favorite activity was jumping from tree to tree and playing monkeys in wild nature. There is where my passion to nature was born and also desire to build own treehouse kindgom in jungle once I'm big.

Many adventures behind, here I'm, ready to help others to make their adventures of their lives to come true.

During my adventures I met an indigenous girl from Ecuadorian mountains, married her and now we have three little girls, living in Finland but striving to get back to the Ecuadorian jungles to live happily out there the rest of our lives. But before that, there are many adventures I have to take to enable my dream to come true.

The activities I like the most in forest and jungles are snorkeling and diving below sweet waters or white water swimming, having tent saunas in the wilderness, spending days and days in silence in the wilderness while becoming a part of the nature. Sometimes I like tree climbing or rock climbing and I used to go lot canoeing in my infancy and now I'm on my way back to modern packrafting, which is extremely nice equipment to make epic wilderness adventures by traveling trough lakes and rives in Lapland.

One of my specialties is to learn wisdom from nature. It is based on the fact that there are trillions of different plants and creatures in the wilderness, where each one of them posses their unique success story.

These success stories has so much to teach us, to mention the stories of the white-tailed eagles. Whenever you watch these creatures flying all over the Finnish archipelago Ahvenanmaa, you recognize that the eagles are actually having much more fun than you do. That these eagles are prospering while you are struggling. Then you make this question: "what wisdom the eagles possess more than you do to be able to prosper better than you prosper?".

If you observe the nature and just let your intuition to figure it out, you will find so many things you do wrong causing the struggles you have, to mention, not living the present moment, worrying things you cannot impact on, not being satisfied on what you have, striving for things that actually do not matter, not loving or taking care of oneself, not understanding the beauty of the nature, not being able to enjoy the moment, not observing the nature but having constant mess of thoughts in your head etc.

These are just the very basic things the nature has to teach you, but the very basics. As I mentioned, there are trillions of success stories in nature, every plant, every three, even every piece of moss, each on them comes with a story. These stories includes a decent amount of life lessons to be comprehended by someone who observes carefully enough.

And I don't say this only in a nature enthusiast role but as a business consultant and innovation professional. If we only understood to search wisdom from nature, the world would be completely different, including the way and the efficiency we do business.
