Let’s head to the roads less traveled, off the beaten path! Himos-Safari -guides will lead you to the forest trails and small sandy roads behind the Himos hilltops. There are routes which are suitable for drivers without driving experience and more bumpy ones to break up a sweat. A glimpse of Lake Päijänne, coffee break by the laavu (lean-to-shelter) on the shore of a spring based lake – who knows, maybe you get to kiss a moose on the way?

PATAJOKI SAFARI – Strictly  driving 

This 1,5 hour safari concentrates in the main thing – driving. After an introduction on how to handle the vehicle we will discover the Himos Resort from different angles. Depending of the season we will drive through small winding sandy roads or head to the forest paths. A quick stop for pictures up on Himos hilltops is a must. 

Duration circa 1,5 hours
Price 89 € / person, 69 € / person (2 people sharing vehicle)

LIESJÄRVISAFARI – Driving and a snack break by the campfire

After getting introduction on handling the vehicle we will embark on the 2,5 hour safari. On the way we will breeze through the network of small village roads behind Himos hilltops that cover the Cape Jämsä. The journey will take us  all the way to the bridge Patajoki where Lake Päijänne opens up in front of our eyes. We will stop for a snack break by the campfire at Lake Yläinen-Liesjärvi where we will grill sausages and enjoy coffee and juice enjoying the silence surrounding this small clear watered lake in the middle of forest. 

Duration circa 2,5 hours
Price 115 € / person, 90 € / person (2 people sharing vehicle)

MOOSE SAFARI – Driving and a coffee break at Moose Manor 

First we will go through the basics on handling the ATV-vehicles and after that we will hop on the wheels. We will make a tour around Himos Resort before heading towards the backwoods where lies a peculiar little zoopark called The Moose Manor. The family run restaurant and zoopark works in a farm house that has existed on this spot from the 18th Century. Moose Manor is the only place in Finland where you can cuddle and kiss forest moose. There are also fallowdeers and reindeers in the park. After taking several #moosies and giving kissies we will also enjoy coffee and house pie in the manor’s idyllic main room or tupa before heading back towards Himos.

Duration approx 2,5 hours
Price 115 € / person, 90 € / person (2 people sharing vehicle)
