excursions, snow shoe tours with emphasis in the nature, culture and

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.

Koli ActivE Oy Ltd
Every winter is different. Still, every winter brings new
experiences! Try snowshoeing, for example. For that, Koli terrain offers
grand climbs and descents. You can polish your technique along the way.
For cross-country skiing, Koli offers 25 kilometres of illuminated
trails. In the spring, when the ice trails and scenic trails have been
opened, the trail network is extended, offering over 80 kilometres of
trails at best. At Koli Activ you can rent a cross-country skiing
package that includes everything. All it needs is the skier. You can
also book a guide, whether you need technical guidance or a tour leader.
Kick-sledding is an activity where you use your own body as the motor.
The ice cover on Lake Pielinen, 100 kilometres long and 30 kilometres
wide, offers a wide open space for it. Just get up and go! Our guided
kick-sledding excursions take us to the National Park islands, where we
pause to admire the snowy landscape and enjoy sausages grilled on a
campfire. Our activity-packed winters also include sledging,
snowmobiling, and tour skating.
