What you'll do

A morning with the animals: chickens and rabbits, how to take care of them, how they communicate? Some Finnish breakfast with our own chickens' eggs. A stroll in the forest picking berries and wild herbs. A break by the clear watered pond and breathing the pure and fresh air, enjoying nature. A visit to the village's interesting shops, cafes and restaurants. Meet the locals and hear their stories. Learn about local history. A paddling tour in lake Majutvesi, enjoying beautiful views and clear water, maybe take a swim. Find the viking treasure! Coffee by the open fire and grilled finnish food.

Erika

I am a wilderness guide and take people on easygoing paddle tours on the picturesque Päijänne lake. I know a lot of interesting stories of local history and nice places to visit in the village. I raise rabbits and chickens in my home and you are welcome to visit, learn about tanning and taking care of the animals. You can participate in my daily routine with the animals. I would also love to take you for a stroll in the forest, show you my favorite place by the pond, fish, pick berries/mushrooms or wild herbs and teach you some finnish secrets!

Where you'll be

My home is 12 km from the Village of Sysmä, an idyllic small house and a yard with a forest as a backyard and a nice view over the fields. There is also a traditional sauna and a short walk to the fresh watered pond. The village of Sysmä is a small and pretty village with lots of nice little shops where you can find real Finnish handicrafts; these are NOT some tourist shops! Paddletour will start from Camping Sysmä's beach. There is also a sauna

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 18 and up can attend. If you are allergic to animals, this is not for you. You don't need any kayaking experience, I will teach you all you need to know. Maybe not for vegetarians...

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

We have pets, so be prepared for doghairs and roosters calls in the mornings. This is a place where you can really live like a local, learn their way and meet the animals. For open-minded. :)
