Total silence tour

Space, time, peace and quiet – the four elements modern life lacks. Finland offers a chance for downshifting even in the heart of the city, and untouched nature is never more than half an hour away. Stay at a cottage, enjoy a sauna and listen to birds warbling across the lake. Finland’s unspoilt forests and thousands of lakes and islands offer plenty of opportunities for everyone to walk about freely and enjoy unique natural beauty.

We’ve made an example programme in Eastern Finland for silence of the wilderness and outdoor activities.
