Taste of Finnish Nature

from 79 €
First, you'll build the fire (without matches!) Only then can you begin preparing a traditional fish / vegetable soup over an open fire. This hands-on tour is set in the beauty of the Finnish countryside, with a unique twist on your standard travelling meal.
Picking berries and mushrooms from the vast forests, fishing along the shores of crystal clear lakes and stopping for a well-deserved camp lunch during a long hike are some of our favorite pastimes in Finland. It is in nature that the Finnish soul recharges. 

Join us to recharge in the countryside and taste Finnish nature for yourself. We will meet up at a local grillikota (BBQ Hut) - no long hike required - and teach you how to build a cooking fire using traditional fire making skills without matches.

Next, we will work together to prepare a camp lunch or dinner using our secret recipe for fish (or vegetable) soup made the traditional way, over an open fire. No camp meal is complete without buns in sticks with homemade berry jam and campfire coffee, tea or hot chocolate. 

Authentic and in line with the Finnish spirit of sustainability, all our ingredients are sourced as locally as possible according to the season. We work with local fishermen (and women!) to use fish from the nearby lakes, buy potatoes from from the farmer with the field next to our lodge and serve jam made from berries gathered from the forest at the height of the season.

Eating outdoors is something you will remember for the rest of your life. Did you know that spending only 15 minutes in the nature not only makes you feel better emotionally but also contributes to your physical wellbeing and reduces your blood pressure and production of stress hormones?   

We’re pretty sure that by the end of the tour you’ll be feeling calm, relaxed and connected to the nature which plays such a big role in Finnish life and culture.
