We took the train U and then the 85 bus and got down at haukkalammentle and walked to hauptkalampi and then haltia (where we got back on the same bus for... More

When you're visiting the Southern part of Finland or just Helsinki, please make sure to plan a day trip to Nuuksio NP. The nature is breathtaking and the trails are very clear and well maintained! Catch a train from Helsinki Helsingfors to Espoo and get on the bus to Nuuksio. Please look at the bus schedule carefully, because the area... More

Nuuksio park has the most beautiful sights that a forest could give you. Lakes, hills, trees are so beautiful. And you can choose from so many routes to walk. I highly recommend the yellow route

Absolutely loved it here! We had from 8-5pm in Helsinki and ventured by train and bus to Nuuksio. Thank heavens people were friendly, so we found it. If you're in the port, take the train from Helsinki to Espoo station (5 stops?). You can pay once you're on the train - get the round trip ticket because it pays for... More

As part of a cruise port adventure we went to the Nuuksio white reindeer farm to meet their herd of reindeer and it was super fun. If you have a chance to go see Oscar the leader and the rest of his herd I would highly recommend doing it. It was fun and informative and a really nice easy hike... More

The trip was truly wonderful. There is no requirement of minimum participants (unlike many other tours arranged in Finland). I was lucky to be the only one on the tour that day, which means I have my personal guide Matteo, who turned out to be extremely nice and experienced. The national park is 45 minutes driving away from Helsinki, with... More

It is 1 hour away from Helsinki City Center. We where there in the summer, great trails that are easily walkable with kids. Great Finnish nature, you may jump into a lake or get some food with you and make a barbecue at one of the huts along the way.

It has been one of the most unforgettable experiences I ever had! It was my first time swimming all the way across a lake! Marti, the guide and co-owner of Natura Viva showed me how natural can be to swim across lakes! This tour is more about sightseeing and to get a first real experience in contact with Finland natural... More

3-hour day-trip to a national park gave me a first-hand experience of great Finish lifestyle that no guide book would show me. The experienced guide is well-versed in trails, inhabitants and local plants in the park. Fun, informative and very Finish. If you're adventurous, I strongly recommend you bright a swimming wear. A beautiful fresh water lake is waiting for... More
