Picnics to Nature

In our range, we ai, to serve excursion participants with taste experiences available in Finnish nature. We mainly utilise forest ingredients, such as berries and mushrooms, lake fish and provincial vegetables. We prefer products from small Finnish producers.  Our menus vary according to the season and harvest periods. The selection includes “Light snacks”, in which you can choose cold snacks for the group, such as salads and French bread, a light dip meal or filled baguettes.

For some excursions, choosing a heartier “Menu” consisting of several courses, such as cold starters, a warm main dish, and a dessert, is also possible. When offering campfire foods, we reserve the right to make changes to the menu due to forest fire warnings.  One menu is prepared for each excursion with consideration towards any special diets.

Pamilo circle route. On the outskirts of Joensuu, you can find Finland’s oldest river, where the grand Pamilo rapids once pounded. Since the river was built, the most incredible pounding has gone, but you can still see the great force of Pamilo in the channel. The forests and rock areas that surround Pamilo will enchant visitors. Many Finnish films have been shot here.
