Introducing Hyvinvointikylä in a nutshell
The Finnish name – Hyvinvointikylä – is translated as Wellbeing Village. Thus the name originate from a concept, which aim to accept anyone without any political, social, cultural, gender etc prejudice or judgement in a nature driven place, where one can always feel safe and welcome.
The surrounding forest, lakes and nature in its all forms offer a variety of communal activities, which support one’s personal health status and in a longer term have a positive effect in one’s sought after rehabilitation process.
We are located in Vihti, within a 50 minutes drive from Helsinki, the capital of Finland.
After a long prospect scouting, the 1.6 hectare property was bought by me and my wife, Merja, in August 2016 and has since been serving the needs of a variety of customers, e.g. corporate team workshop days to weekend yoga and horseback riding courses. All this said, our main objective is to work in close collaboration with local associations, such as Hope, Icehearts and Loisto Setlementti, in order to be able to help socially excluded children, single parents, lonely seniors etc.
By default we offer:
1. Our main building for your exclusive use (300 square meters)
Hammock chill area
Sleep over cabins
Toilets, shovers and sauna
2. Food (home made or ordered catering)
3. Activity examples (1-3 hours)
Easy and calm forest walks and/or strenuous training exercises in the nature
Horseback riding in the forest and/or educational visit to a local animal farm
Easy body stretching and/or more advanced in-depth body improvement exercises
Please let me know if you are interested in visiting our over a century old, but fully renovated, wooden log house and its pristine nature surroundings. We operate around the year, preferably serving groups of 10-15 people. I’m more than happy to answer any questions, regarding your possible concerns and special needs.
