Perfect half day trip to nature
Oct 2021 • Solo
In the morning I was picked up by David at the hotel. There was already another woman in the car. We three came directly well into conversation, David has already explained a lot about the Finnish nature on the way to the national park. In Nuuksio National Park we have mastered a trail at two lakes/ponds. Amazing how beautiful and green the park is even towards the end of October. The tour really shows many different types of forest. Halfway through the trail we had a warm drink with Finnish cookies and licorice. David specially adapted the path so that our feet stayed dry. At one of the lakes we later ate a delicious homemade mushroom soup.

The trip was a perfect escape into nature, in the summer the tour is probably even more beautiful, but it is also highly recommended in the fall. A really nice trip that I would recommend.

Beautiful views. Highly recommend.
Our guide David was friendly and very knowledgeable! The trails he choose for us were just right for our skill level. He promised berry picking and he delivered. He was organized with our snack and lunch. Everything was delicious and very hot still!

Great hiking experience in the Finnish taiga
Oct 2021 • Couples
We really enjoyed spending half a day on the trails of Nuuksio National Park, picking berries, looking for mushrooms, drinking glögi from traditional kuksa and eating Finnish sweets and homemade mushroom soup. The scenery was very beautiful and our guide, David, very friendly and knowledgable. We highly recommed this tour!

Relaxing hike in a gorgeous forest
Sep 2021
David is very knowledgeable about the forest and all aspects of Finnish life. I learned a lot of fascinating things during our lovely hike. Nuuksio Forest is really gorgeous.
David tailors his hikes to his guests, so you’ll never feel overwhelmed. He also picks everyone up at their hotels, which is very practical.
He also brought cookies and a traditional Finnish drink, which we had mid morning, and even provided lunch, which was a delicious homemade mushroom soup.
All in all it was the perfect morning.
