Visit Nuuksio National Park, one of Finland’s top nature attractions, and enjoy a trek led by a professional biologist. You’ll see tall coniferous forest, small forest lakes, and ancient cliffs covered by mosses and lichens.
What to Expect
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.
