Full description
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.

The trip was good, with a good hiking route and the weather was absolutely perfect. The guide was nice and friendly. There is not so much narration or history about the area itself along the way, that might have made the trip more exciting. But all in all a really good experience and a nice break from the city.

A very nice trip out of the city and into the Finnish countryside. Mikhail was a very knowledgeable guide, we discussed nature, history, politics, language and more. He explained many of the plant species we saw and helped me to indetify a bird I was not familiar with. I would reccomend Mikhail as your guide for this trip, he also gave us tradional Finnish snacks during our hike! Thank you Mikhail :)
