Nuuksio is great place for a weekend visit from Helsinki. It is farther away from the city. Public transportation through train and bus or bus alone from the city is available but the frequency is not high. So, it would help to check out the times and plan in advance. The park is a beautiful place for picnics and hiking.... More

A friend and I went for a small hike (about 12 km) through the hiking trails of Nuuksio. The weather was excellent on the day. The hiking trails were of intermediate difficulty. We took the 85 A bus from Espoon Keskus to Kattila, reached the blue hiking trail from Kattila and reached Haukkalampi. From there we switched to the red... More

I visited my Finnish relatives who live in Helsinki and Espoo. I had four days, and on three of those days, their sightseeing plans involved being outdoors - outdoors, they said, is where the Finnish heart truly lives. And no wonder! Nuuksio is so beautiful. It feels like a troll or some other fantastical creature is around every corner. For... More

Great place for short (2-3km) or long (several days) hikes. Untouched nature. Easy to reach by public transport.

Nuuksio nationalpark is an experience you don't forget. Specially in spring. You can walk there hours alone and enjoy birds singing, hear all the voices of spring time. And all near by Helsinki. If you want to know how the natives have spent their freetime, go to Nuuksion. You learn to understand something about finns. If you meet someone siting... More

First off I just want to boast that I am fortunate to now be living in Finland. Second, I'm here to say Nuuksio National Park is now officially my adult playground. I'm one of those nature dudes and survivalist types and having a nature park like Nuuksio so close to home is a gift. So far I've only now been... More

Excellent place just about 30-40minutes from Helsinki city central. Need to take a bus front of kiasma or train to Leppävaara and continue by bus. Most crowded place is the Haukkalampi area. If you want to have more peaceful area, choose southern area. Plan your trip from Siikajärvi up direction north.

If you fancy something close to nature, perhaps a hike here would be good. We stopped by the Haltia for information, and they recommended us to take the red trail 2.4km which starts at Haukkalampi. Not a very difficult trail, probably takes about 3 hours of leisure walking and including a picnic stop over. Nice scenery of lakes and forested... More
