Make jewellery and hike at Hiidenportti National Park

Welcome to hike and make your own unique earrings or pendant in the stunning scenery and tranquillity of Hiidenportti National Park. On the excursion we will hike 5 km and admire the gorge valleys, swamps and the atmosphere of the old forests. During this excursion you get to assemble your own piece of jewellery from varnished and painted birch plywood jewellery parts, recycled stone beads and allergy safe steel, as a souvenir of the hike. After the trip you will be able to design and make your own jewellery in the future!

You will also hear stories about local nature and the mysterious Hiidenportti goblin. Will the goblin peek through the rocks to admire the jewellery you made? Maybe! After making jewellery, we will enjoy small snacks and hike back to the starting point in a happy mood.

The hike is suitable for all those looking for new experiences and those who are stressed out. It has been proven that making handicrafts in nature is relaxing! So welcome to the jewellery and hiking adventure in Hiidenportti National Park!
