Join us and experience the HaliPuu -forest in the most relaxing way possible. Swaying gently in a cosy cocoon, you can leave your worries and stress behind and fill your lungs with the intensely pure Arctic air. This is what Lapland is about!
We start our Cocooning experience in Veitservasa, a place full of stories and family history. After a walk through our family's old woodlands we arrive at our HaliPuu – hugging tree forest. Pappa, an old lumberjack and the owner of the woods, saved the forest from harvesting and now the century-old pine-trees are being adopted by people from around the world. Can you spot the cocoons among the trees?
Our specialist guide Steffan takes you through a series of relaxing exercises designed to bring you into the here and now. When you feel ready, you are tucked into a warmly insulated hammock for the ultimate forest relaxation. Afterwards we share a traditional warm blueberry soup and a savoury snack.
