Emika and Antti invite you to join them on a breath-taking trip into the wild. Saimaa, Finland’s largest lake, bustles with life, and its thousands of islands offer many places to put up your tent. Seasons pass by, each more beautiful than the last. Emika feeds birds from her hand like Snow White, and shares thoughts on life, people and nature. Antti teaches how to prepare a fish in the wild.

 

Did you know you can pet a fish? Have you seen a swan running on water? This breath-takingly beautiful film makes even those estranged from the nature want to go camping. Minus 15 degrees centigrade doesn’t stop this duo from sleeping outside, and on ice far from city lights the stars shine bright. Emika and Antti are also on a mission to see a rare Saimaa ringed seal – if only to catch a glimpse.
