An autumn fairytale!
Oct 2019 • Friends
When we planned our trip to (the wonderful city of) Helsinki, we decided that we'd like to see at least parts of the finnish nature aswell! Therefore we took part of this hiking adventure through the Nuuksion national park!
We went there in October, which might have been the best time possible since autumn had already done its work! All the leaves were shining in the brightest colors, which was absolutely breathtaking!
Our guide could answer every question we had and explained a lot himself, so we had an awesome insight into finnish nature and also culture.
I would definitely recommend booking this trip, especially if your trip to Finnland basically only consists of being in the city!

Beautiful park and lakes
Aug 2019 • Family
Enjoyed the fresh air, bird songs and the explanations of the trees & the natural surroundings. However, the price is expensive for this half day tour, and we had to pay for the train and bus fares on top of the excursion price.

Magical Snowy Day Hike
Dec 2018 • Solo
Nuuksio National Park just outside Helsinki is a truly special, beautiful place, and my hike there with an outstanding guide, Mikhail, was one of the highlights of my two week winter trip to Finland. Mikhail was super friendly, highly knowledgeable, and really understood the park, nature, and provided lots of terrific insights and information about the trees, lakes, wildlife tracks we spotted, and proved more than willing to snap a few photos of me with my phone. The day I took my hike was made even more memorable due to the special conditions of the forest: lots of snow from the previous week covered everything, and I loved hiking in the sub zero weather. Sometimes the scenes looked like something out of an old Hollywood movie, they were so perfect. It was a wonderful, magical hike made even better with a great guide. Highly recommended.

Amazing, memorable experience with a fantastic guide
Nuuksio National Park is a wonderful and peaceful place that you can visit on your own. But please don’t. Book with Mikhail because he has so much love and knowledge about the place that it adds to your understanding about this special environment and the joy of your visit. I cannot recommend this trip and Mikhail’s guiding highly enough.
I traveled with my teenage son and we both loved Nuuksio and the overall experience. Don’t be put off about going in the winter as fresh snow means you can see all different animal tracks and the cold allows you to walk on frozen lakes.

A memorable trip with a great guide. A must go in Helsinki.
Dec 2018 • Family
Nuuksio National Park is a beautiful and serene place. The park is at is most natural state but has a trail that is easy to hike. I cannot find a better word to describe the views and the calmness one will get when you are there. And what made the most difference is our Guide, Mikhail. He is really great, knowledgeable and caring. He explained and answered our questions patiently on the forest. He even pointed out animals' footprints, what animals were those during the trail. This is really a good experience for us.

His planning is so perfect, be it the hike or when taking the public transportation. What i like most is, is a small group and on public transport. We went as a family of 4 and when I asked Mikhail, he said we promised is a small group and 4 is good. I am expecting a group of 8 to 10 when they mentioned is a small group.

A truly memorable and unique experience in a spectacular scenery
Aug 2018 • Couples
Nuuksio is a marvellous place, the surrounding beautiful nature makes you feel like you're in paradise. But it's so much better if you have Mikhail as your guide. We couldn't have had a better guide - he was absolutely brilliant, very informative, knowledgeable and polite. The tour was filled with breathtaking views which we would never find on our own, interesting facts and insights, and several fascinating activities like a typical Finnish outdoor BBQ, finding animal trails, picking mushrooms and berries and discovering the local flora and fauna. This trip to Nuuksio was a truly rewarding and memorable experience.

Wonderful hiking trip
Apr 2018 • Friends
We had a great hiking experience with Mikhail. He is very knowledgeable about the plans, birds, and geological history. Part of the trail was still covered with ice and he was so nice to lend us the spikes to put on our shoes, very well prepared. It was a wonderful experience, highly recommended!

Wonderful alternative to the city
Sep 2015 • Couples
Our cruise itinerary sandwiched a day in Helsinki between two days in St. Petersburg and two in Stockholm. We wanted to see a little nature, so we booked a half-day with Mikhail. He met us at the dock and took us by public transport, which gave us a chance to see some of the Finnish countryside, to Nuuksio. The park is quiet and beautiful. The walking was easy for the most part and went through lovely forest and by lakes. Mikhail is pleasant and knowledgeable, with a good command of English. We had a wonderful time-- it was just the kind of day I was hoping for. I highly recommend this trip!
