You have probably already heard that Finns have been ranked as the happiest people in the world for the sixth time in a row. What is the secret to our happiness? The basic pillars of Finnish well-being certainly have a part to play: peaceful nature, thousands of lakes, more than three million saunas, and local and healthy food. And all of these can be found in Vuokatti!

Vuokatti’s four different seasons offer a wonderful setting for spending time in nature all year round. Here you can experience winter with its crown snow-load trees and admire the thriving nature in spring. The white nights of summer and the midnight sun offer unforgettable experiences, and when autumn comes, the gorgeous autumn colours completely change the view. It’s no wonder that Finns love nature in all its seasons.

Nature also has proven health effects: it helps us to recover from stress and improves mood, and exercising in nature also improves our physical fitness. Nature can be enjoyed with all the senses, and everyone has the opportunity to find their preferred way of spending time in nature. Here in Vuokatti, you can try cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing and canoeing, among many other activities. Or just breathe in the fresh forest air and enjoy the silence.

Finnish sauna

Finns are passionate about saunas, and saunas have also been found to have health benefits. Regular sauna use lowers blood pressure, relaxes muscles and reduces stress, among other things. Saunas have a long tradition in Finland, and they are an essential part of both everyday life and celebrations.

In Vuokatti, you can enjoy traditional sauna experiences in many ways: in a landscape sauna, smoke sauna, log sauna or steam sauna. In summer, you can cool off in a lake, and in winter, you can take a dip in an ice hole before warming up in the sauna. Winter swimming has great health benefits, even if you don’t break a sweat. Winter swimming has been proven to help with pain, improve adaptation to the cold and increase the body’s antioxidant levels.

Local food

Finnish food is simple, tasty and healthy. In Vuokatti, you can enjoy fresh fish from local lakes, berries and mushrooms collected from nearby forests, as well as game with a strong flavour. Harsh conditions and scarcity have also been known in Vuokatti and that’s why the food is so respected. The raw ingredients are simple, but the food is made from the heart; earnestly and patiently simmering.
