Nature and Wellbeing

Feel Koli is a trademark of Ilovoltti Oy (“Somersault of Joy”). With over twenty years of experience in nature related activities in Koli, we are committed to providing authentic, unique nature experiences for our customers. On your unhurried Feel Koli nature tours, you can truly experience Koli by slowing down and connecting with the nature. We provide nature excursions in all seasons and all weather: In summer we offer nature walks, hikes and tours.  And in winter, we gently explore the surroundings with snowshoes.

In our souvenir and outdoor equipment shop Koli Shop Retkitupa we sell high-quality hiking equipment. We also have a wide range of T-shirts and beanies made in Finland and other Koli souvenirs. And for those who prefer renting, we also have a selection of outdoor equipment for rent.

Our core values are respect for the nature, ecological way of living, sustainability and responsibility. Welcome to join us on our nature tours, to visit Koli Shop Retkitupa, and to experience one of Finland’s most beautiful national landscapes!
