Real Experience

Nature provides an experience in and of itself. The four seasons give you a reason to come back, to take a peek at the constantly changing scenery. The darkness, the starry sky, the blue hour and the northern lights from autumn to the freezing temperatures of January and February. The abundance of green in spring and the opening of nature’s own wild salad bar, as well as the magic of the nightless night, nature swims and fishing. Midsummer and autumn rain and the appearance of wild herbs, berries and mushrooms. Experience and enjoy nature in a natural way.
