What are we going to do

Huuhkaja hike takes you on a journey through inner and outer landscapes. Rocky paths, old trees and autumn colours invite to slow down, to witness the changing of the seasons, and to engage the senses. Along the trail, your guides offer you opportunities to be still and to notice, to reflect and to share, to wonder and to imagine. The hike involves a series of mindfulness practices, enriched with stories of Finnish mythology and with facts about the diverse Finnish nature. Exercises are held alone, in pairs, or with the whole group.

The group will gather at Kiviniemi, near to the Koli National Park. The trail length
is approximately 4km and its level is moderate. All you need for it is a basic condition
and a curious mind. During the break at the campfire we offer coffee/tea, traditional karelian pie and tasty, grilled apple.

After booking you will receive more precise info about the event. For questions,
please contact us. Welcome!

Your guides are Evelyn Enters and Sonja Linnala. We speak English, German and Finnish.
