Hike through a tranquil forest by trees, swamps and small hills as you hear the chirping of birds. Dive into a pond if you wish to. Sit by the side of the pond and fry some sausages and Finnish forest food in this six-hour journey from Helsinki.
Meet your tour guide at the Helsinki Airport or your hotel and make your way to Hvinkää, to the Sveitsi Forest, on a one-hour drive.
Start your 5-km hike in the forest.
Take a mid-hike break beside a small swamp-pond of Iso Karhu or Kaksoslammit. There, fry some sausages. The ponds and swamps in Sveitsi Forest are deep and brown coloured but clean, so you take a quick swim also.
Continue hiking until you return to the car.
End the day with a return trip back to your hotel in Helsinki or the airport.
