Full description
Escape the hustle and bustle of Helsinki on a half-day hike of the Sipoonkorpi National Park, and learn more about Finnish nature from a biologist guide.

Transfer from Helsinki to Sipoonkorpi (just 25 kilometers from the city center) by public transport. On arrival, hike in wild coniferous forest, following a professional biologist guide who will tell you about Finnish nature and take you to curious geological formations hidden in the depth of the forest.

Established to protect endangered animal and plant species of the taiga forest, Sipoonkorpi National Park also features traditional farmlands from the 13th century, numerous forest types, mires, bogs, and several small lakes.

Hike the rugged terrain for approximately 3-3.5 hours as your guide explains how it was formed by the Ice Age thaw. In primeval times, the area was covered by sea and glaciers that ground the rocky shores to form unusual rock formations, now completely hidden in the wild forest. Hear about - and see - the “Trolls” or “Giants' Kettles.” Go to some of the park’s picturesque lakes, and more.
