Activities | Breathing in natural well-being

Exercising in nature is caring for the body and mind as heart rate and blood pressure drop, stress decreases and mood improves. Forest excursions and moments of silence encapsulate the idea of less is more. The Heart of Finland offers a variety of nature experiences. If your heart rate doesn’t need calming, canoeing, fishing or mountain bike trails await. When winter comes: you can go cross-country and downhill skiing.
