The Lake Lady – Finland 100
You will arrive at Yli-Kaitala in advanced agreed time and will go to the trip with your group to the Talasvuori hill. There was assebled a Lake Lady statue for the vision of finnish nature and its Lakes and Rivers.
Pieni Järvineito, the Little Lady of the Lake, is a tribute to Finnish 100 years independence, unique lake environment, and Kymijoki River. During the forest walking we will enjoy bird singing, nature smells and admire the Lake Kettujärvi and River Kymijoki views.
To bring a fitting end to the occasion, we will raise a toast of lingonberry drink to the Finnish lake and river sceneries.
If it is already getting dark, the path will be lit with lanterns.
On the return journey we will stop at Kipinäkota (“Spark tepee”) to admire the artworks hung there, painted on animal hides. The paintings depict the rock paintings of the area and its history, including the history of the first people who lived by Kymijoki River.
