Summer 2023

Strenghtening Hike and Yoga in Forest

Starting point: Rautakankareen maja, Lahti


We hike up to the highest hill in Lahti, Hakalaukunmäki, to enjoy the scenery of Tiirismaa and Lake Vesijärvi. And then down to the rocky shores of Vesijärvi through magical, silent old spruce forests. On our way we’ll stop to listen silence, feel the ancient ground under our feet and strenghten our bodies  with the equipment offered by nature – trees, stones, branches.. And to calm our mids and relax by breathing the fresh air and healing scents of old trees. 


After challenging your body with the walk on a rocky path on a shoreline, you can refresh by swimming in the lake, taking a nap in a hammock*, having a relaxing moment in Finnnish Sauna*, enjoy dinner* made from local ingredients or just sit and relax by a bonfire*.


Total walking distance 3,5 km, hiking and yoga time 1,5 hours.

Hike and yoga 35€/person, min 4 persons.


*= Extra cost, ask for availability and prize


Hikes to Tiirismaa hill and Pirunpesä -cave from Hollola also available on demand.
