Lusto events

Lusto events and work demonstrations explain man’s relationship with the forest and the environment to visitors. Work demonstrations take visitors back in time by introducing them to traditional crafts and skills. Events that focus on all things related to forests offer visitors interested in forest culture an opportunity to spend time together while learning new skills.

Lusto hosts several events with long traditions, including Metku – the Forest Culture Days, the Christmas Tree Day and the Harvest Festival.
