Nature Saimaa, experience the true and unique nature
Sustainable nature excursions and adventures
Do you still remember all those fairy-tales, which started with the words “ Once upon a time, far, far away…”? Well, we offer you a chance to visit “far, far away”, to experience the mythical atmosphere of the nature and see the wonderful nature attractions which are hidden in the deep, mystical forests or nearby the beautiful lakes! Here, in the middle of nowhere, you can have an unforgettable excursion to the true and beautiful Finnish nature, hear something of our exciting history, unique mythology, old stories and fairy-tales and feel the calming effect that only the wilderness can give. We can also customize our excursions for different kinds of themes, groups and ages, so please, just tell your wishes to us! Did you already watch the videos?
Our eco-friendly excursions include also traditional forest hikes and nature and wildlife observation. We run excursions out into the forests and lake landscapes of South Karelia. The excursions are organized on request. A full meal, packed lunch or for example tea /coffee with traditional pastries on a campfire can be included in each excursion if ordered. Or we can organize a meal or coffee with paistries in Cafe Kaiku. The duration time can vary from one hour to the whole day, depending on the contents, the theme and your wishes!
We do not use motorized equipment in our nature excursions. Instead, we travel mainly on foot or, for example, with kicksleds. If necessary, we arrange a shuttle to the place of departure. Our trips are always environmentally friendly and organized according to the principle of sustainable development.
