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 park was delightful, especially how we experienced it in early December with light snow, frozen lakes and scenery to die for. But, the best part was Mikhail, the guide. I left a lot richer in knowledge about the surroundings, a low more aware of animal footprints and with lovely conversation throughout the hike. Both Nuuksio and Sipoonkorpi national parks were wonderful experiences and I truly made lifelong memories walking through them.

A really nice walk through a beautiful park. The guide was great and very knowledgable and we walked at a pace that was suitable for my wife son and I. We all thoroughly enjoyed our day out and are very glad we took this tour. Public transport was very easy to use, clean and an efficient way to travel.
