Whenever I mention Finland to a friend, forests and lakes appear before their eyes... along with snow and dark nights. However, often people stay in Helsinki and do not see this. Nuuksio is the answer. Though the area would be interesting in winter, summer would be best. It is wonderful for a short visit to get a taster of Finnish... More

This national park, jut 40 km, from the capital, summarises for you on a one day east trip, what Finnish scenery is all about. Well marked, very clean, good information hut, and around all that dozens of lakes, ice age rock formation and huge forests. A half an hour bus trip (85 or 85A) will get you their from Espoo...

There are plenty of trails around the area. Few are marked but if you are an expert outdoors person you can easily wonder around all over the place. There is also a trail that goes from Nuuksio to Salmi outdoor area. You can find many nice lakes there and plenty of good camping ground. You'll find also campfire places and... More

After a speech about sustainability in Espoo I got the possibilities to go to Pekka at the Green Windows in Nuuksio Park för a smoke sauna bath and an excellent dinner. If you're never tried a smoke sauna before - this is the place to do it. Don't forget to have call Pekka for a dinner afterwards. It's worth travelling... More

I had such a lovely day in this park. I went there in Spring 2015 when snow didn´t completely melt yet, so I could build a snowman while enjoying the sound of waterfalls, streams, and birds. Getting there from the city centre is super easy for everyone even if you´re a first-timer in Finland like me. Most trams (if not... More

We had a fantastic day-hike at Nuuksio. Based on an excellent recommendation from the knowledgable and extremely friendly park staff at the visitor center, we took the orange access trail to the yellow loop trail. This was a great hiking, covering a decent amount of terrain and a few challenging elevation changes. There were nice stretches along lakes, as well... More

Fancy a wild nature walk close to the Finnish capital? Take the train to Espoo and a bus 85 to the national park - all in all it takes 1 hour, and the price is €5 for the ticket. Choose one of the excellent marked circular trails (2, 3.7, 7.2 km) and enjoy the peace and the nature. It's a... More

A piece of most stunning Finnish nature just around the corner of Helsinki. It only takes half an hour to get to the lake highlands by car from the city centre, a bit longer by public transport. The contrast to the busy and noisy city center is huge - it's the best-kind of stress-relief to just sit on a cliff... More
