Are you craving a vacation that slows things down? Are your dreaming of holidays that are made of authentic discoveries and encounters with locals? Is nature a source of energy for you?
The Happiness Camp at the Torstila organic farm will offer you the chance to experience authentic life on a Finnish farm, discovering the pristine nature and sharing time with your host, the farmers Juha and Ami. They will be your guides on your discovery of the secret sources of Finnish happiness.
During the three days we will slow down and focus on simple things: We will bake together Finnish traditional rice pies "karjalanpiirakka" and rye bread, discover the lakes and forests in the backyards of Torstila, fish in the lake, slowly move in the woods, and prepare and enjoy classic Finnish meals in different settings. We will visit an organic animal farm, where sheep and cows are treated as friends rather than industrial cattle.
You will have the chance for an authentic sauna experience: heat up the stove your self, carry the water from the lake, and enjoy the heat of the sauna and take a dip in the lake. If it's winter, we'll first have to make the whole in the frozen lake.
All meals are prepared of organic, local products.
The tour is suited for anyone ranging from kids to gradma's. We adapt the activities to your group (eg. for kids / for athletes). The tours are organized only for private groups and families in order to keep it personal and exclusive, with a maximum of six persons per group.
The tour is adapted to all seasons and weather conditions. In winter, when snow and ice allows, we will move by skis or snow shoes, and in the summer by walking, bikes and canoe. Car is used only where necessary.
Pricing 790 € / person 390 € / kid (2-14 years)
