Forest bath

Forest bath is a true Finnish nature experience. In the forest bath you move forward on foot accompanied by a guide, honoring the nature, listening, smelling and tasting. After the trip to the forest the program continues to a Finnish home to have an authentic sauna experience with a local family at their home or summer cottage.
