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.

We had an absolutely fantastic guided tour with Mikhail through the Nuuksio National Park. He met us outside Helsinki train station, helped us to buy the train and bus tickets and got us to the park quickly and efficiently. The walk through the snow covered park was absolutely breath taking and one we will remember for the rest of our lives. Mikhail paced the walk perfectly to our stamina levels and even brought a snack to share. He patiently waited for us to take as many photos as we wanted to, the scenery was so beautiful we couldn’t stop taking pictures. Mikhail also expertly pointed out animal tracks in the snow, provided a lot of really interesting information about the local wildlife and landscape as well as life in Finland in general. He clearly knows the area well and was able to explain for example, that we would have taken a different route, if weather conditions had been different. We would never have attempted this trip on our own, and it was excellent value.

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.
