The Fiskars ironworks was founded in 1649 by Pohja Parish, at that time the centre of iron manufacturing in Finland. Pohja and its surroundings had unused hydropower resources and plenty of charcoal manufacturers. Dozens of untouched lakes and undisturbed forests still surround the ironworks. Some 10% of the forest in the area are now protected, and the remainder is very carefully managed. This natural wilderness with its crystal-clear lakes and wildlife is a nature lover's paradise.

We organise enjoyable group programmes in the marvellous nature surrounding the Fiskars ironworks. Enjoy them on their own or as light relief after a meeting or conference day.

Our nature programmes can also be customised to suit your exact requirements. Great hiking, real rock climbing for beginners, canoeing, trip skating and snowshoe walking. Options include meals outdoors in natural surroundings and a wilderness sauna experience.

The Biggest Loser, about 2 h

As in the well-known television series, players in this game attempt to lose as much weight as possible. Members of each team are first given extra weight to carry, and then have to get rid of as much as they can by completing tasks and solving puzzles. These typically involve Fiskars' secret language, choreography, balancing, endurance, answering questions connected with health and exercise, sporting performance and problem solving. When all the tasks have been completed, each team's members are weighed and the winning team is rewarded with resounding applause or magnificent prizes.
