Feel Koli unhurried nature tours in all seasons. Guaranteed departures in peak seasons, weekly activities all year round. For groups, tailored tours and other activities. Nature walks, hikes and excursions, snow shoe tours with emphasis in the nature, culture and history of Koli.
On your unhurried Feel Koli nature tours, you can truly experience Koli by slowing down and connecting with the nature. All our excursions, tours, and walks are based in the rich local history and culture and the unique nature of Koli. In peak seasons we have guaranteed departures for individual travellers. Our weekly activities take you where nature is as its best: in spring it could be the forest full of bird songs, in summer meadows and their beautiful flowers and in winter the quiet snowy forest. For groups big and small we tailor tours all year round. Our guides are local experts who are committed in giving you an authentic and unforgettable nature experience.
