Hiking in the Wilderness

Do join us for a half-day or longer hike either in Central Finland or in Lapland!  The hikes are available in English, Finnish or Swedish.

We can hike e.g. along the longest hiking trail in Southern and Central Finland, i.e. Peuran Polku (Forest Reindeer’s Trail) which is more than 130 kms long.  Short hikes taking a few hours or half a day are available at Pihtipudas, Central Finland.  We can also drive to Lapland and begin our hikes at Kiilopää or Saariselkä in North-Esatern Lapland.

At Pihtipudas you can choose e.g. a 2,5-kilometre/1,5 mile hike with a chance of enjoying a campfire which will take a couple of hours.

Prices: 20 euro per hour in Finnish, 24 euro in English and in Swedish plus expenses (car expenses only 30c per km).  If you are e.g. a group of four people, the price for each is only 6 euro per hour!

A wilderness hike taking 3 through 5 hours is available, starting from lake Yölampi in northern Pihtipudas.  During this hike called Hunters’ Sacred Havens we can look at a 10,000-year-old seal hunters’ base plus at a huge sacred stone which shows the face of our ex-Finance Minister Mauri Pekkarinen… 🙂

Do join us and hike with us either in Central Finland or in Lapland!
