Wild Triathlon

The setting for this tour is Hossa Hiking Area, voted as a “Trekking destination of the year 2011” in Finland. The nature of the area is dominated by crystal clear lakes, rivers, pine heathlands, ridges, and small mires.

There is a wide network of paths and unpaved roads in the area providing good opportunities for trail running and cycling. Small lakes and narrow rivers offer safe circumstances for canoeing. 

The tour is suitable for fit people who have experience on running, cycling and canoeing and have basic skills of orienteering. Everybody starts at the same time but this is not a competition. All participants can do the activities at their own pace, however there will be a time limit for each activity for safety reasons.
