Day 2: Nordic Walking tour & visit to a salt room

The day starts with a good breakfast. Then it is time tobe active outside in the unspoiled nature. The guide will take you on a Nordic Walking tour in the Syöte National Park. A good exercise in the fresh air, admiring the flora, fauna and sceneries. Nordic walking finds its origin here in Finland and becomes more and more popular in Europe. An active way of walking with poles; you will use about 90% of all the muscles in your body. A pretty healthy way, indeed! The guide will explain the basic technics. Along the way we will enjoy some coffee or refreshments and cake. After this walk you can keep the Nordic Walking Poles during the rest of your stay to go out on a hike yourself. In the afternoon or evening transfer to the oldest museum-store (since 1882) of Taivalkoski, named Jalavan Kauppa. There they have reconstructed a salt room. Floor, walls and ceiling are pure salt. Enter the room and relax for about 40 minutes in one of the comfortable chairs. The air will be circulated and will purify your skin from the outside and when inhaling it will also purify your airways, lungs and sinuses from the inside. Some refreshment, coffee or tea with cake will be served. A unique experience, that’s for sure! Sauna, swim, dinner and overnight at Iso Syöte.
