The theme trip is based on the beloved picture book “The book about Moomin, Mymble
and Little My” by Tove Jansson . Island Riddles will take you on a milk-seeking trip to the
Moomin primeval forest and to the same beaches that Tove used to walk as a child. When
you set out on your journey, you will receive a book along with 14 puzzles, by solving them
you will find the path through the forest. Take your friend by the hand, let´s go!
So how does this adventure work?
At the point of departure, you will bring with you the Moomin book and a tip for your first task. By solving the tasks, you move to the finish. Some tasks require cleverness and are suitable for both adults and older children. But you need to be able to move about 3.5 km along trails in the terrain. In this version of the theme trip a guide will be with you all the time. The guide will assist the group in solving the tasks when needed, and take care of all practical matters. This is a good option if the group is inexperienced in moving around in nature or if the mother tongue is other than Finnish, Swedish, English. This option is priced at a fixed group price and the maximum number of participants is eight. In the 2021 season you will be guided by Erika or Jon Englund, Island Riddles entrepreneurs. With the guide, we can also provide a partially accessible experience. Ask us more, we tailor the experience to your group (link contact)
Start and finish
The adventure begins at the villageshop of Pellinge, Söderby-Boden. (address: Vanha Söderbyntie 44, 07390 Suurpellinki ). At the shop you will given instructions to the tour and after that you will move by your own in the terrain. The 3.5-kilometer-long trail takes 2-3 hours to hike to the archipelago. The game ends on a high cliff overlooking the Gulf of Finland. There, on the lean-to, it is good to eat dinner and go out and wash your paws in the ocean.
We reserve the trail for only one group at a time. So you can enjoy the nature and the company of each other without interruption or rushing, and the lean-to is reserved for only you for a couple of hours. The ideal size of the group is up to six people - but don't worry if you are more: we can send the adventurers in smaller groups.
The recommended minimum age is 6 years, but younger children are also allowed to participate, here you parents know your child best. Children under the age of 3 participate for free and are welcome to join, the best way to do it is with a carrying belt or backpack, we do not recommend a stroller. Groups under 16 must always have one adult.
We are adventurous – so dress according to the weather! You don't need any special equipment, just comfortable shoes and one mobile phone to access the web. You get a backpack with other play equipment when you leave the store. You can borrow raincoats from us if you need to. Remember the bottle of water and dinner!
