One of our favorite parts of an adventure is coming together to prepare a camp lunch made over an open fire. Join us in the peaceful countryside of Kuusamo to learn how to make fish/vegetable soup made the traditional way, over an open fire. While working together to prepare your camp meal, you will have a chance to learn some basic survival skills (like how to start a fire without matches) and hear about the Finnish way of life from your local guide.

We will send you home relaxed, bellies full and recipe in hand so you can experience a small taste of Finland wherever you are.

Adventure Apes is a small, locally-owned adventure company focusing on providing the most authentic Finnish experiences in a sustainable way. If you would like to add on a day hike or an overnight stay, please contact us and we will be happy to work with you to create a tailor-made adventure and to offer suggestions on the best local experiences.

Itinerary

We will meet up at our grillikota (BBQ Hut) and teach you how to build a cooking fire using traditional fire making skills without matches.
Next, we will work together to prepare a camp lunch or dinner using our secret recipe for fish (or vegetable) soup made the traditional way, over an open fire. No camp meal is complete without buns in sticks with homemade berry jam and campfire coffee, tea or hot chocolate.
Authentic to the Finnish spirit of sustainability, all our ingredients are sourced as locally as possible according to the season. We work with local fishermen (and women!) to use fish from the nearby lakes, buy potatoes from the farmer with the field next to our lodge and serve jam made from berries gathered from the forest at the height of the season.
Eating outdoors is something you will remember for the rest of your life. Did you know that spending only 15 minutes in nature not only make you feel better emotionally but also contributes to your physical wellbeing and reduces your blood pressure and production of stress hormones?
We’re pretty sure that by the end of the tour you’ll be feeling calm, relaxed and connected to the nature that plays such a big role in Finnish life and culture.
PS: If you'd like to experience your camp lunch paired with a long hike (in summer) or snowshoe expedition (in winter), just contact us and we would be happy to plan a tailor-made adventure!
