Nuuksio National Park: Half-Day Trip from Helsinki

1. Nuuksio National Park: Half-Day Trip from Helsinki

If you’re planning a visit to Helsinki, be sure to include a half day for a trip to Nuuksio National Park, located within the boundaries of greater Helsinki. It takes about an hour and a half by public transportation to reach the park from the city center. You’ll be met in the center of Helsinki, and travel by commuter train to Espoo center and then take a local bus to the park entrance. The park is ranked among the top 10 nature attractions in Finland and is a must-see. To get the most from your visit, it’s best to let an experienced guide and professional naturalist lead the way. Enjoy the scenic beauty of the tall coniferous or mixed forest, with trees growing around enormous primeval rocks, in an area that’s rich with mosses and ferns. You’ll come across numerous small forest lakes, and you can stop to enjoy a swim. The forest is inhabited by various animals, including such rare species as the Siberian flying squirrel, found in Europe only in Finland and Estonia. With your biologist guide you’ll trek through the tall forest, learn about the natural features of Finland, enjoy scenic views, and hopefully spot some wildlife.

What people are saying about Espoo

Overall rating

(9 reviews)

Overall, a successful trip with fascinating nature! The journey by public transport took about 1 hour and worked well. The only thing we thought was a shame was that we walked pretty quickly through the park for 2.5 hours and there was little time for photos/no time for breaks. We would have liked to have enjoyed the breathtaking nature even more in a few quiet moments. (Perhaps the speed was also due to the temperature of -16°C and an exception that we didn't get cold :)) Otherwise very worthwhile.

Excellent! The driver contacted us saying that he was waiting for us. He let us know where to meet him and also had a sign with our name so we would know him. The ride to our hotel was perfect. Thanks

Despite -18 degrees, we had a wonderful tour. Our guide got us through the cold well. I can highly recommend the tour!

The tour was simply amazing!!! Very beautiful nature and the guide was very knowledgeable!

The guide was amazing,very helpful I recommend this tour for everyone You won’t regret it
