Äksyt Ämmät organize unforgettable holidays in the natural surroundings of North Karelia in Finland. The tours are designed for people who like the great outdoors and want to use the opportunities offered by ‘green tourism’ to get to know how people live and work in rural Finland.
A nature based enterprise, Äksyt Ämmät tours each have a special focus. We offer winter and summer tours including hiking, biking, canoeing, skiing and getting to know each other and the locals.
One evening is spent in a traditional smoke sauna, but you can make a trip to sauna virtually every evening if you wish. The day always starts with a hearty breakfast and nothing is planned before the breakfast. Our cross country skiing tour requires skiing experience and an average condition, but you get fitter every day!
