After a fairly short train and bus ride we were soon at the visitor information centre (very easy to spot if coming on bus 85, big brown funky looking building). Grabbing a map we were shortly following an easy path towards the lakes. At this time of year the paths were a bit icy, making it slippery and having to... More

The scenery is amazing! Spent a weekend in the park and it was a great escape into nature. Hope to make it back someday. We went ice fishing and snowshoeing. We also enjoyed a Finnish sauna and Viking bath! We stayed at the Green Window and they organized all the activities. The food was amazing.

This is an excellent place to get acquainted with the forests in Southern Finland. The park is relatively easy to reach with public transportation from Helsinki (requires changing from train or bus to a bus in Espoo) and very easy to get to by car. The paths in the area are very good. However, for a bit less touristy experience... More

Nuuksio National Park is one of Finland's 37 national parks and certainly the most popular by the number of visitors annually. The Helsinki Metropolitan Area with which Nuuksio confines is home to more than a million people - over 20% of the total population of Finland! Situated just about 40 km from Helsinki city centre, Nuuksio is easily reached by... More

This park is just one hour from Helsinki center by public transportation. You can take a commuter train to Espoo, and then bus 85(A). If you take the 85A, you can reach Kattila, where there is a path which leads to the center of the park (Haukkalampi). Otherwise, if you take either 85 or 85A, you can get off at... More

Amazing experience to be out in the nature. The park was very well managed, with different sites for camping and grilling, with toilets spread out. The lake wasn't the cleanest but it was okay for a swim. The marked trails are very helpful and there are plenty of place to do some activities. Something you should not miss when you... More

Just 40 km from Helsinki you find this beautiful national park. Don't hesitate to go even if you don't have a car. We took the E-train to Leppävaara and from there bus 28 to Siikiniemi - about an hour from Helsinki. The are marked trails from there of different lenght. If you walk the 4 km to Haukkalampi you're rewarded... More

If you want to for a day hiking into Finish nature then you must visit Nuuksio. It's only 40min ride by car or an hour ride by bus. It's the only place that I visit all around the year all seasons. If you are a bird watcher then you should visit Nuuksio during spring (April, May) and Autumn (September). You... More

It is a joy to see so many friends around the world walking on the tracks of Nuuksio National park. This is closest you can get to Finnish forests around Helsinki. Chrystal clear waters and lakes are waiting for a respectful visitor to stay overnight. The cost? Free. I am afraid that the only public transport directly to the tracks... More
