Breath and relax! The nature and surroundings of Himos gives you a memorable way to simmer down. The genuine Finnish sauna and forest are an incredible source for inner strength and relaxation – from these elements the Finns draw their famous sisu and stamina. Forest bath is a 3 day long dip to the nature of Central Finland and to the Finnish traditions.
Unpack your bags and settle in. Our cottage located in the bosom of nature offers you gentle settings for a vacation. Rest or embark outside – swimming beaches as well as hiking- and skiing trails are nearby the cottage.
Forest bath is perfect treatment, according to the studies already 15 minutes in the forest lowers blood pressure levels.
In the Forest bath you move forward on foot accompanied by a guide, respecting the nature, listening, smelling and tasting. You’ll hear fascinating details of the Finnish environment and times of the year.
After the trip to the forest the programme continues to the home of a local family at their home or summer cottage. Relax your muscles in the heat of the sauna – depending of the time of the year you’ll cool down jumping to the soothing lake or having a brisk roll in a snow.
Sauna snack provides you an amusing night. Duration of the programme approx. 5 h.
