We'll meet at the train station and from there we will get a bus to the starting point of the walk. In our walk, you will discover a beautiful swampy area and its two small islands. Along the paths, you will learn about Finnish culture, such as what Finns call a mökki and what does it mean "private space" in Finland. You will also learn a few facts about forests and forest laws and berry and mushroom picking as we venture in the nearby forest areas. Towards the end, we will also go to try out the steam of a Finnish traditional wooden heated public sauna and take a swim in the Baltic Sea. Eventually, throughout this experience, I hope that you got a taste of the role nature plays in Helsinki's dweller life and, in a broader sense, introduce you to the connection between Finns nature and sauna.
I am a Nature passionate and lover. My whole childhood I enjoyed being in forests, roaming the flower fields or be out catching fish. Living in Helsinki, that joy of walking in the forest, picking mushrooms and berries, camping or just being in nature is very easily accessible to me. I am also passionate about how people interact with nature and how that interaction shapes culture and environment. For my professional life, I am working to support regenerative agriculture. We can talk a lot around this subject. Last summer I cycled all the way from Finland to Romania, camping and visiting regenerative farmers on the way.

We will meet at the Central Railway Station. From here we will ride a bus to a natural area where we will explore Lammassaari and Kuusiluoto islands by foot. Further, we will continue our adventure in the arboretum belonging to the University of Helsinki. By now we would have walked about 7,5 km (4.7 miles). To round up, you will get the chance to feel the steam of one special sauna in the heart of Helsinki and cool off by dipping in the sea.

It will be a 3-4h walk and sauna (free) will add about 1.5 h. Sompasauna is a mixed-sex very traditional wood-heated sauna by the sea with no shower, changing room or running water. In the sauna will be naked people as in Finland this is a normal custom in the sauna culture.
