What people are saying about Helsinki

Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 457 reviews

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.

It was an awesome trip in the nature of Finland. The guide Mikhail has detailed knowledge about Finland and it's nature. And I have to say, he's a relaxed cool guy. Really recommendable tour.

Mikhail was fantastic start to finish. Really beautiful tour to see the park in a layer of mist. A must see for any trip to Finland.

A very informative and I interesting trip.We covered all the main sights and our guide face us alot of interesting information .

A really informative tour! The guide was excellent and the park was beautiful
