  4. 4. Helsinki, the city of Winds & WatersThe Baltic See and its linked waterways have always been a lifeline of Helsinki. The city hasalways been an important port and the gateway to East and West. The Baltic Sea has been theprovider of food and protection with its multiple islands along the coastline.We want to show how that continuous energising force is effecting everyday life. Finns could becalled "water people". There is no comparison to the deep feeling of sparkling when sitting on arock or on the dock and listening to the sound of the wind. Who does not want to dip ankles inthe warm water and feel the sensation of the water . Winds & Waters ProgramThe day starts on the top of the Kaivopuisto hill. We will sip pure andnatural blueberry drinks and stroll the seaside peer. A cruise will take us to visit Saunasaari Island. It is full of different kinds of sauna´s. Smooth and wind molded rock shores are a perfect place to feel the warm sea breeze on your face. The beautiful sea view and fresh air will give you a chance to renewal.Saunasaari is a place to go to a traditional smoke sauna and have aninvigorating swim. The mystical moment after hot sauna and cool wateruniquely opens up your Qi - in a very sensual way it energises you. Good and healthy food is a part of good energy. For example traditional Robbers roast and vegetables are stewed in a hole in earth under glowing coles for many hours. Imagine the simmered taste and aromas´s.Perhaps we decide to go to visit a lighthouse or SuomenlinnaFortress. It will give a sense of mysticism of adventure, oldtimes and extreme circumstances of the northern nature.

Blueberry Program Blueberry Trail starts with a short drive to Lake District where we take a slow boat-ride on the lake. We will be taken to a forest and guided safely along the best trails. We will learn about Finnish nature letting the nature inspire and energise you.   In the forest we might find a Hunter´s hut. A tipi-like hut has an open fire where we enjoy blueberry shots and have a surprisingly healthy lunch. Spend a moment and breath in the forest´s enchanting aromas, sense the warmth of the fire in a hut. Not forgetting homemade blueberry pie with freshly made coffee boiled over the open fire.   The most enjoyable way to end this trail is swimming in a lake. See the blue sky reflecting from the water - feel the relaxing sensation of   the velvety water.
