What are we going to do

Silence tourism - get to know the new relax program – Just Hanging Out! It is a night of "forest bathing"
Become one with nature, feel how the wind blows, experience how a dewdrop feels on your skin, taste the sunset! Close your eyes and sense, taste and breathe in sync with nature. When you’re just hanging out you can enjoy the rain like nature’s shower or curl up in a hammock under a shelter and listen to the rain dance on the roof. "Forest bathing" (Shinrin-yoku, a form of nature therapy) is all about caring for your mind and body while taking a trip into yourself. Come and experience the natural alphabet of our forefathers and spend an unforgettable night in the wilderness!

About Katri - the Doer

In the early 2000s I walked, cycled and canoed in North Karelia for a living. That was to collect material for the popular outdoor guides Outdoor Karelia Finland and Koli Guide and the portal www.vaellus.info. They bear witness to a strong interest in the nature.
This interest has not faded.
Most of the routes described in the publications still exist and are available for those keen on invigorating activities in unspoilt nature! Also new routes have been added - but more on this later...


Outdoor clothes are needed. Warm clothes, also a hut and woolen socks! Normal health is enough. The rocks can be slippery when vet.

VisitKarelia takes care of this site's marketing but is not responsible for the content nor selling the experiences.
