Kainuu's safe and healing nature surrounds us on this kayaking trip on Lake Lentua. Lentua is a beautiful Nature reserve, rugged, wild and quiet lake in Eastern Finland near the Russian border. There is a lot of beautiful islands with big old forests. That's why it fits perfectly for using the Forest Mind - methods on this trip. Forest Mind is a program of mental skills exercises designed to utilize and intensify the natural healing effects of forests. Kayaking itself can be very intensive, calming and meditating way of moving forward in the healing nature. 

Lake Lentua is the largest unregulated lake in the basin of the Oulujoki river, and the most valuable example of lakeland nature in Kainuu. The shoreline is mostly unbuilt and there’s a strong sense of wilderness. Many of Lentua’s waters and islands, and parts of the shoreline, are restricted Natura areas. The Southern part of Lentua features open waters, whereas in the north, the lake is characterised by many islands and narrow inlets in between. The shoreline is combination of vast sandy beaches, small sandy coves, steep cliffs and flat bedrock. 

After the days' kayaking it is very relaxing to take a traditional Finnish sauna, relax on the lake shore afterwards with your Forest Mind instructor and let the mind and body calm down.
