Saagasi Events is an Events and Programme Production service which specialises in telling stories through exciting, thematic adventures. Whether you want to be the star of your very own action movie for a day, or follow hidden fairy trails through the magic circle in the woods, we wish to help bring your unique vision into reality.
The core values of Saagasi ("Your Saga" in Finnish) are sustainability and accessibility. What does this mean for your event? Simply put, it means that we're on a perpetual quest to discover new eco-friendly, zero-waste, environmentally responsible methods of creating high-quality content for your enjoyment, while at the same time taking into consideration issues of inclusivity and individual requirements.
Saagasi Events works primarily in Oulu and around the Northern Ostrobothia area. To inquire about services outside the region, please don't hesitate to ask. You can contact us via email@example.com or by filling in the form below.
Saagasi Events offers adventures ranging from small, private excursions to the countryside (perfect for families or groups of travellers looking to experience a closer connection to nature) to the full-blown Viking-style feast of your dreams. We're delighted that most of our ready-made programmes either are accessible or can be made accessible with some changes.
- Elves, Gnomes and Fairy Folk: A guided hike along the beautiful Lemmenpolku
("Path of Love") nature trail that snakes along the grand vistas of the Oulu river
and through forested foot paths framed by birches, spruces and pine trees. While
surrounded by the elements, you will learn about different nature spirits and
ways in which Finns have sought to appeal to them for protection and good fortune.
Duration 1-2 hours, price 25 € per person (minimum charge for 4 people). Additional
services (transportation, meals) available.
- Sauna & Stories: Leave your everyday worries behind and enjoy a relaxing, unhurried moment at a traditional Finnish wood-burning
sauna... after paying proper respects to Saunatonttu, the spirit protector of saunas,
of course. Afterwards, sit down by the fire with a hot drink in hand and listen
to a reading of select stories from Finnish folklore and legends. Duration ~2
hours, price 38 € per person (minimum charge for 4 people). Additional services
(transportation, meals, overnight stay) available.
- Fireside Magic:
Take a short guided walk through the forest to open up your senses to the
spirits that were so central to the ancient Finns' way of life, before sitting
down by the warm fire at the seer's hut. There, if you wish, your future and
fortune will be revealed through the magic of the Runes. Do not be troubled,
for the hut is a place of healing and tranquillity. Duration 1-2 hours, price 30
€ per person (minimum charge for 4 people). Additional services
(transportation, meals, overnight stay) available.
- Elves, Gnomes and Fairy Folk, Sauna & Stories and Fireside Magic, combined together, make for an excellent all-day excursion into the forest and into the Finnish mindscape. When ordered together, the total price of the programme package is 85 € per person (minimum charge for 4 people). A light meal and tea/coffee is included in the price.
