From pine tree to tar tradition fr. 150€/group

The pine tar tradition has been a significant part of Finnish cultural history since the 17th century. In Kainuu, tar burning flourished in the 20th century, when 3/4 of Finnish tar was produced in the area. The role of tar in people’s daily lives was significant, as tar was used not only as a wood preservative but also as a medicine against rashes and diseases. Thanks to accelerated demand, tar rose to a significant role in improving the livelihoods of the people of Kainuu alongside agriculture.

After the wars, tar production declined and tar burning has continued on a small scale, above all to maintain local traditions. Lentiira burned the world’s largest tar grave in 2000. Lentiiran Terwa continues to produce processed tar for various uses such as wood preservation, hoof care, steam tar and the food industry.

From pine tree to tar guided program, you can hear tar stories and get to know the tar tradition of Lentiira. During the tour, we visit the tar grave and watch a film about the tar tradition. In addition to the history of tar, we get to know tar products and their uses. Products can also be purchased for take home. The tar program is ideal as a program number for group trips and in addition to meetings. Request a quote for your group.
