Once you are in Finland, you’ll see why it is called The Land of the Thousand Lakes. Vuokatti is surrounded by lakes and is part of Lakeland Finland where the lakes are many and people are few. This excursion will take you to one of the secluded lakes, to the roads less travelled, where you will experience Finnish nature on your own. When there is no traffic, no people, no electricity – you will feel the nature on all your five senses; nature looks brighter and more colorful, food by open-fire tastes different and better, you can hear waves at the shore, smell the nature without distractions and feel the clean and fresh air through your body.

DAY 1

Your experience starts just after noon when Safari guide will pick you up from your accommodation. You will travel approximately 15minutes by car to shore where you will proceed to the boats.

You will cook a small snack by the fire before exploring the island with the guide. Depending on the time of the summer/autumn, your guide will show and teach you about edible berries, mushrooms and flora which can be found on the island. You can spend the evening by your wishes – swimming, fishing, relaxing or taking a stroll and exploring the nature.

Dinner will be set up with the help of the guide by open-fire. You will enjoy traditional Finnish delicacies: sautéed game meat, potatoes, lingonberry jam and pickled cucumbers. Before setting off to bed, enjoy the Midnight Sun and sense the nature as it wakes up for the night.

DAY 2

Waking up on a deserted island is an experience itself – to hear the birds, smell the morning dew and feel the weather.
