Hey! I am Harri, a Finn living in Spain, passionate about travel, animals, and outdoor adventures to seldom-traveled places, and I am always trying to do it in a responsible and conscious way for both the planet and local communities. 😗 I admit that I have always liked to travel, discover remote places, and have new experiences. And yet, a few years ago, I went back to my roots and returned to my origins via active travels. I had the opportunity to have a daily sauna with a subsequent dip in the lake, paddle with the blue of the sky melting into the water, stop at left to pick a few blueberries, and eat something on the grill… It was a very intimate moment of contact with nature –not a cloistered nature– but alive, where people unfold. 🇫🇮 This is how the Finns feel about their land.

Trip Itinerary

Helsinki Airport

Day 1
Hei kaikki, welcome to Helsinki! Our trip kicks off with a Group Meeting at 12 pm. If you aren’t able to arrive in the morning, we recommend flying in a day early to settle in. Today we’ll explore the capital city, including a visit to a few main tourist points, which we can choose by the interest of the group.

Repovesi National Park

Day 1-3
OUR DESTINATION REPOVESI NATIONAL PARK a picturesque Repovesi National park offers adventures for everyone. Its high hills and cliffs challenge keen climbers, and hospitable routes invite those who simply want to enjoy the gorgeous views during a pleasant stroll. Highlights for families include a hanging bridge, the hand-operated Fox’s Ferry, and cozy Lapp-style huts for rent. Repovesi is situated in South-eastern Finland just a couple of hours from the capital city Helsinki, but the city feels a million miles away when you sit around a campfire listening to the eerie calls of red-throated divers. The Saimaa area is perfect for sailing the waters of its lakes in a kayak or for spending the night by a campfire in one of its adorable cabins because, it should be remembered, that in Finland nature is not only wild, it can also be enjoyed free of charge as long as the environment is respected. We will overnight here for 2 nights at an authentic finish cottage, with the sauna of course!


Day 3
After checking out of our cottage, we’re off to Saimaa, the land of Thousands of lakes and the capital of Savo. After lunch, at Heinola we’ll visit Lahti city to see ski jumping if the weather and our timetable give flexibility. Driving to Helsinki where we’ll have an included dinner. We will overnight at Klaus K Hotel, Helsinki which is a Tom Of Finland-themed hotel


Day 3-5
Rise and shine for the most homoerotic morning of any Explora Finland Adventure…ever! We have a three-hour walking tour devoted to artist Touko Valio Laaksonen, aka Tom of Finland. His work is famously tantalizing and defined by men sporting denim, leather, mustaches, and bulging crotches. Lunch will be served in a Finlandia-themed restaurant. We will overnight in Helsinki at one hotel in the city center. To end this journey in style, our Farewell Dinner will have us feasting at a restaurant.


Day 5
There are no activities planned today, so you are free to explore the city and depart at your leisure. Your local guide Harri will help arrange your included departure transfer to the airport. Safe journey!

Repovesi National Park

Day 5
Koppelonkierros trail treats hikers to views across Tervajärvi Lake, shadowy cliff faces and mature forests. The old-growth forests of Tukkiniemi are also home to the animal from which the trail derives its name: Koppel, or female capercaillie. Services and structures for us: There are several campsites on the trail. An information board, toilets, and a canoe pier can be found close to the Tervajärvi parking area. Toilets, campfire sites, and picnic tables are provided in Lojukoski, Kuutinkanava, and Talas where we can have lunch. Lojukoski and Kuutinkanava also have canoe piers and wells (visit the What's New page to check if the water is fit for drinking).
