Treasures of winter

Enjoy relaxing cottage holiday and winter activities in traditional Finnish landscape!

DAY 1: Arrival to Helsinki and drive with rental car to Tervalepikon Torpat, Sysmä (about two hour drive from Helsinki Airport). Accommodation either in Vesan Villa or Tainan Tupa cabin. After arrival, free time to relax.
DAY 2: After independent breakfast at the cabin, it is time to meet your guide! Explore the surrounding nature with snowshoes! This private snow shoeing tour is great for couples, friends and families. Your seasoned outdoor guide will lead you off the beaten path through the forest to snow covered lake. Throughout the tour you will have the opportunity to discover animal tracks and bask in the simple solitude of the nature. Although the snow will eventually melt, the memories you create will last a lifetime! During the tour, snack lunch is served around open fire. Later on, ice fishing trip to
local lake: a session of ice-fishing can be counted as a sort of meditation. Whilst waiting patiently for something to happen – and often nothing does – your mind clears itself unexpectedly and effortlessly... Free evening at the cabin.
DAY 3: This day is spend on skies and enjoying the snow! After independent breakfast, you learn the secrets of cross-country skiing! During the 90 min lesson, you get to know the basics of skiing and you can try the tracks at your cabin’s surroundings. After the cross-country skiing school, it is time to see what you can build from snow: castles,
sculptures, snowman... just use your creativity with the guide! During the snow workshop, snack lunch is served around open fire. Free evening at the cabin.
DAY 4: After independent breakfast you can just relax and enjoy the last moments of your holiday. At noon, check-out and drive back to Helsinki.
