We arrived at Nuuksio Hostel interested to see wild Finland, Kai was very welcoming and was cooking up a storm for us within minutes of arriving, it was a very cool place and a welcome change from the European cities we had been to visit previously, we drunk beer in his own beer hall and shared stories around the camp fire before Kai got his guitar out to provide some live music. Kai supplied all the sleeping equipment which was all new and quite comfortable, we slept in a massive tent on camp beds which were off the ground. kai also runs Kaikuva adventure tours with loads of activities,The first day we got up earlyish and drove to one of Kai's favorite lakes where we spent the day canoeing, fishing and swimming in the crystal clear water, JUST BEAUTIFUL! This is what we came to Finland for, An amazing day. Other activities included archery, mountain biking and a very successful wild mushroom hunt, delicious! Unfortunately we had to move on after only 3 days which didn't seem long enough, great value and strongly recommended for the outdoor nature type.
