There are valleys, patches of marshland, quietly flowing forest streams and two beautiful forest ponds. Spending time in nature to keep fit is part of Finnish lifestyle today and the Kisakallio Sports Institute offers a wide variety of sports, activities, educational opportunities as well as excellent facilities for professional and amateur sports enthusiasts. Spending time in the Karnainen Nature Spa by hiking helps people to reduce blood pressure, reduce cortisol levels, boost the immune system by increasing the levels of natural killer cells, reduce stress level and improve creativity.
Visitors will be hosted by one the nature professionals from the Kisakallio Sports institute. Their passion is to live healthily, enjoy activities in the Finnish outdoors and teach guests how to experience the Finnish way of everyday life close to nature and hiking trails.
Karnainen Spa trail is less than 3 km but takes about 3 hours with breaks. The aim is not to rush, but to spend time listening to sounds, sitting or lying down, watching birds and butterflies, and walking silently. Calming down opens the senses and enables deeper perception. The guide will make a number of stops during the hike to let the group focus on particular aspects of nature experience.
