Tentsile Nature Adventure from Helsinki

Tentsile Nature Adventure from Helsinki

Ready-made tour for individual passengers to book. Please note the minimum number of participants, which is needed for the tour to take place. Date fixed but available for small groups on order.

Repovesi National Park (15km2) together with the private Griffin's Forest Nature Reserve (14km2) owned by UPM is located in the area of Kouvola and Mantyharju. You can find there large forest areas as well as high cliffs and tens of smaller and bigger lakes with translucent water. The fauna is versatile. There are red-throated divers, flying squirrels, owls, lynxes, pine martens, elks, otters and beavers living in the area. In order to preserve the nature under the increasing number of recreational visitors, the trail network has been changed and guidance improved during the recent years.

World Heritage Site Verla  is an old industrial village, which has grown around a groundwood and board mill. The indutstrial perios ended in Verla in 1964, when the last remaining employees retired. Verla is an extraordinary well preserved example of the small-scale pulp and board industry born in the countryside of northern Europe and North America in late 1800's and early 1900's. There is a guided tour in English available.

Tentsile Adventure  is a complete escape from everyday life. You will explore the nature by foot and by kayaking. You will sleep in a tree. You will get delicious food prepared in the nature by a wilderness cook. The adventure has been created by minimising the ecological footprint. You will be in good hands, your guides Sami and Marika as well as your cook Erkka and your wellness specialist Tony are all real wilderness specialists.

To participate, you only need a normal, good shape.

Tentsile  is a tent hammock or hammock tent for 1-3 people and their equipment. It is hanging from a tree and offers a good shelter for backpackers.  

Age limit: 15yrs
