Silence Travel Services Lieksa - Koli



The Finnish people highly value nature as a place of silence. Silence is often perceived as part of the great, wide outdoors in their natural state. Nature’s sounds are often thought of as pleasant sounds of silence. By going outdoors, we can enjoy silence, listening to the small sounds of nature. When was the last time you heard the sigh of the wind, the lapping of the waves, your own breathing or the rustle of fir needles under your feet?




Nature as a Source of Strenght
This excursion provides an opportunity to forge a close and deep bond with nature through sensory exercises, alone and in small groups. During these exercises, visitors will have the chance to enjoy Koli’s landscapes. This excursion mainly follows the trails of Koli National Park, but exercises occasionally lead visitors away from the paths. In addition to sights and sounds, the participants experience their surroundings through touch and smell, allowing nature to spark off their inner creativity. Exercises performed during the excursion may strengthen your bond with nature. You can also repeat the exercises later, in the forests close to your home, in public parks or in the wilderness.
Times: 15 May - 30 June and 1 August to 30 September.
Price: EUR 25/person (minimum group size: 5 persons)


•  Photographing and Watching Wild Animals in Silence

You can see wolverines or bears, wolves or lynxes, beavers or some large birds such as the goshawk or a golden eagle, and plenty of smaller birds and mammals. You can spend your night safely in the scenic surroundings of a year-round log cabin, where you can also eat and sleep.
