Wilderness at your fingertips
Forest Sound Walks in the Meiko Nature Preserve take you to one of the most beautiful, tranquil areas in Southern Finland. Our paths travel through pine forests, lakesides, rock cliffs and swamps. We can choose a shorter route with slower pace or decide for a longer hike through the woods. Depending on the time of year we might stop by the fire for a moment.
Even if the area’s first inhabitants date back thousands of years, Meiko today is a nature preserve with no houses or driving routes. There are still deer, bears, wolves and other wildlife living here. On Meiko’s peaceful shores you can hear your voice echoing from miles away.

We walk through the woods. Slowly. Humming and breathing. Listening how the nature responds. Opening our senses. Enjoying the colors and scents forest sends to us. Letting the nature and sounds affect, restore and rejuvenite us.
Welcome to experience the culture of nature and music through your own experience! Forest Sound Walk leads you to relax through slow pace, gentle movements, breathing and humming. It opens your senses through listening and feeling and restores the connection to nature.
Be prepared to get refreshed, re-energized and inspired!I
We will begin our excursion with a 30min introduction. Our slow pace walk takes about 2 hours, and we close the excursion with a brief conversion by the fire or indoors.
