Would you like to try out what it feels like to sleep a night in nature under the open sky? While resting in a hammock – dubbed by some as the cradle of gods – you’ll feel like lying on someone’s lap as you relax and let your thoughts wander. When night falls and you close your eyes, you can still feel the elements on your skin and the nature around you. With a little imagination it feels like you’re back in the wild.
At Jokiniemi, you’ll have the opportunity to try out sleeping a night in a hammock under open sky in safe and easy way. We've picked You on ideal spot for camping in the middle of nature and all the essential camping equipments are provided. You won’t have to go far, wander long distances or carry loads of stuff around with you. It is only a 400-meter walk to the camping site on a private sandy beach. And still you feel worlds away. You cook your food on an open fire, watch the sunset instead of the evening news, breathe fresh air.
You’ll be guided to the camping site and instructed to suspend the hammock safely. You also get advice with camping equipment and how to put up the fire. Once the guide has made sure that all is well, he/she’ll bid you good night, and you’ll get to enjoy a great experience, simplicity and peace of nature.
