Darkness lands in the forest with silent whispers and soothing sounds. Night sky with its endless stories and beliefs opens. Looking up we see the same sky that our predecessors have looked upon for thousands of years. Welcome to experience the night as it was in older times. Your guides Eppu and Sanni will lead you to a memorable sound walk inside Nuuksio National Park. After the daylight has left, we'll beam up the lights. During the walk you'll hear stories of the history and present times of the National Park. Sanni will lead you to the ancient tradition of folklore and nature singing, luontolaulu. Together we’ll gather by the fire to explore sounds and stories like so many people in Finland have done for hundreds of years... Be sure to leave relaxed, restored and inspired!
