This is a great national park right outside of Helsinki. By car half an hour drive and you will find vast outdoors with forests, ponds and swamps. Nature here is amazing, well marked trails and many places to stop at. Some routes have info signs on animals, plants etc. My favorite place outside of Helsinki to discover real Finnish nature!

Great hiking trails, even for super young kids. Picked blueberries at the height of the season, which kids always enjoy!

We choose a route that didn't look to challenging and was supposed to be 7km. It turned out to be quit challenging and about 1km longer, but very beautiful, indeed a nice walk.

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

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
