kaki.1.jpgHow would you like to gather herbs and cook a peaceful dinner, learn handicrafts and enjoy exercise, observe farm and wild animals, learn to control your body and mind, enjoy pampering treatments, sleep outdoors by a lake or in a forest, a garden or another green oasis, pick berries, walk in the wilderness, row a boat or steer a canoe, or experience a butterfly retreat or a meditation accompanied by the sounds of the kantele, a traditional Finnish instrument?



Scenic Cruise on the Koitajoki River

Go with the flow and enjoy!
Running in both Finland and Russia, the Koitajoki river provides an excellent chance to become familiar with Karelia’s varied natural landscape. The river includes both churning rapids and large lakes. Our scenic cruise will take you along these waters on a motorised pontoon raft.

This accessible raft has an even bottom and carries 12 persons in addition to the captain.

The tour begins at the Möhkön Manta cafeteria in the Möhkö village, where we put on weatherproof clothing before embarking on the cruise. Based on the group’s preferences, we trace the slow Koitajoki river and marvel at the riverside scenery as we move towards Lake Nuorajärvi. You can also try your luck at fishing, by trolling on the river. Fishers need a valid fishing licence from the Finnish state. We will also pack food and – depending on the weather – cold or hot drinks. Our return schedule to Möhkö can be tailored to your wishes.
Price: EUR 75/hour (for groups of 1-12 people), incl. the programme, the raft, its captain and the necessary safety equipment, trolling gear, snacks for the cruise, liability insurance.
Time: 1 June - 30 September 2015; weather permitting!
Additional services: We recommend a visit to the Möhkö Iron Works museum.

Awareness of Nature and Self – Harnessing Energy
A retreat for enjoying nature and silence through rest and movement. The course includes guided
meditations, using various techniques and exercises to sense the energy of nature. We will reinforce our connection to ourselves and nature’s greater wisdom, taking account of the season and the weather.
Price: EUR 190/person/day, incl. instruction and full board and lodging at the Möhkön Rajakartano manor 2-5 days (groups of 6-12 persons)
Cow Camp

Do you want to learn how to milk a cow? Or maybe you would like to groom a calf, give it milk and walk it to the pasture on a leash? Or drive cows back from the pasture at sunset? Or would you simply like to get to know friendly farm animals and their lives, and spend an active holiday with a difference? Our Cow Camp offers all this, and much more! The Camp is for everyone who is interested in cows and farm life, regardless of age. Eastern Finncattle, a breed of cattle originating in the area, is the star of the camp, but we also spend time with sheep, goats, chickens and occasionally horses. We also make cheese using the milk of Eastern Finncattle. Those interested in cow breeds can learn more about Eastern Finncattle.
Price: EUR 275/person, EUR 20 reduction for siblings, (groups of 20 people)
