What to expect
***A WINNER OF VISIT FINLAND AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE AWARD 2018*** Our 2h Cocooning experience starts in Veitservasa, a place full of stories and family history. We walk through Raekallio family's old woodlands, and hear how the forest’s history is intertwined with the events of the 1900’s. We experience the trees, marvel at the stillness of the nature and breathe in world’s cleanest air. After a 500 m walk we arrive at the HaliPuu – hugging tree forest. Pappa, an old lumberjack and the owner of the woods, saved it from harvesting and now the century-old pine-trees are being adopted by people from around the world. Can you spot the cocoons among the trees? During the walk our specialist guide takes you through calming exercises designed to bring you into the here and now. When you feel ready, you are tucked into your hammock-nest for the ultimate forest relaxation. There is nothing to accomplish, nothing to perform. You are free to just be. Afterwards we share a traditional warm blackcurrant juice and a savory snack. We head back the same route, but this time at a bit different tempo – we are now in the rhythm of the forest. *Finnish people have been drawing their health from the forests for centuries. We have been going into the woods for stress release and healing even before the modern research into the medicinal qualities of trees. Nowadays we know that the phytoncides emitted by pine trees take down the cortisol and adrenaline levels of the body, decrease the blood pressure and increase the white cell count. Just a couple of hours in the forest can bring health benefits that last for weeks.*

A must do experience with amazing people
We were collected and met by Stephan and Ritta who own and run this experience. We walked (and my Mum was snow mobiled) about 1/2 a mile into the forest with Ritta pointing out interesting facts about this loved piece of woodland. Our 3 hammocks were waiting for us and we were tucked into a cozy comfortable position before being gently swung and then left to marvel at the scenery and sounds of the forest. Gentle large snowflakes floated down interspersed with sunlight and birdsong - amazing, blissful, sublime💕 afterwards we had tea and a snack before leaving with an appreciation of this couples vision and a thankfulness that we were able to share this experience❣️
