Memorable dinner around an open fire

A memorable dinner around an open fire

One of the most memorable moments is a dinner around an open fire - this always comes with nice stories about Metsäkartano and nature around it.

Feel the warmth of the crackling open fire and the magical glow on your skin after walking through the silent forest. After an exciting day full of adventurous activities, come together and relax with your friends with good food and good conversation.

Our professional guide will take you on a journey through the forest to the outdoor cooking hut where your delicious dinner will be waiting for you. Enjoy the walk under the twinkling stars... And if you are lucky you might even see the glorious colours of the Northern Lights!
