Wild Taiga Kuhmo-Suomussalmi
The treasure trove of nature and culture
Wild Taiga Kuhmo-Suomussalmi is a place where you can enjoy positive experiences, relaxing in an environment where nature is at her best with fresh air, evergreen taiga forests, crystal clear waters, rich culture, and be looked after by its friendly people.
In addition to its naturally beautiful scenery, the forests of Kainuu, Arctic Lakeland, are filled with mammals, especially large carnivores which are either very rare or extinct elsewhere in Europe. For those who like the outdoors it offers diverse variety throughout the year. Amongst all the beauty and silence you can unwind from the stresses and strains of everyday life.
Kuhmo and Suomussalmi, two areas on the eastern border of Finland are a perfect example of just the right mixture of strong tradition and rich culture. Viena Karelia is essential to the customs of the area introducing different folk music events, exhibitions and local culture. The Finnish national epic, Kalevala, which is translated into more than 60 languages, and the cultural heritage with its runosinging have been the cornerstones of culture and identity of the Finnish people and Finland. The city of Kuhmo has been designated as a city of literature of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. For music lovers the biggest event of the year is the two-week long international Kuhmo Chamber Music Festival arranged in every July.
Companies are committed to nurture the pure nature and the rich intangible cultural heritage of the area. Wild Taiga already offers visitors a wide selection of sustainable activities in the pristine nature, local food, family-run guesthouses and locally produced products as souvenirs for example.
We wish you meaningful experiences all year round!
