Short Break in Helsinki: winter sports and culinary experiments

Short Break in Helsinki: winter sports and culinary experiments

A relaxing long weekend! First enjoy outdoorlife  at the countryside! Just to make you hungry for culinary experiences in Helsinki, where a delicious dinner and a culinary walk will wait for you. Depending on your interests you can choose either 2 nights at the countryside and 1 night in Helsinki or 1 night at the countryside and 2 nights Helsinki.

Kisakallio  is a sports resort in Lohja, only 40 minutes from the airport. The landscape in Lohja is very hilly and the lake view is picturesque. The resort has been in constant development during the recent years, two new apartment hotel buildings, sports facilities and villas have been built and renovated. You will stay in a modern, high-quality hotel apartment. Alternatively you can chooose to stay in a hillside villa with great view over the frozen lake (recommended for groups over 6 people).

As Kisakallio also is a sports institute, there are all kinds of sports available. For groups 1-5 people we suggest rental equipment for self-guided activities, in Helsinki there will be instructed morning sports available also for small groups. For groups 6-16 we have included a snowshoeing and a tour skating tour in Kisakallio as well as a morning yoga (or alternative morning sports) in Helsinki.

Helsinki  in January can be really cold, stormy, shiny, rainy or something between, which does not really make a difference since you will be concentrating on culinary culture. You will first have dinner in an excellent, small restaurant focusing on local food. Next morning will start by some morning sports after which our guide Heather will take you for a culinary walk. You will get stroies about Helsinki and Finnish culinary culture, meet local vendors and hear their stories.
