Really enjoyable run round Helsinki on a wet and grey Saturday morning. Communication prior to the run was by email and was straightforward to organise. I was met at my accommodation and did a nice gentle 6 mile run in just over an hour with Iska. Despite the weather I got a good tour and it was a 1 on 1 session so I could ask lots of questions and in general Iska added lots of good facts and information as we ran. It was a great way to orientate myself in a new city and work out where to go for the next few days - and got some wonderful recommendations for food and drinks. Only 4 not 5 because of the cost at €50 - but I think that is just me getting used to the cost of living in Finland.

Went with my girlfriend on the Nuksio Natural Park run. It was just the two of us and the guide Jussi. He picked us up from the hotel and from the beginning he was very friendly and made us feel most welcomed. During the 30mins drive to the park he answered all our questions that we had about Finland in general or about running in Finland. When we got to the park, he customized the run to the fullest so it would fit our needs and different paces. He talked to us the whole run and took us to a lot of unique spots in the park which otherwise we wouldn't have found on our own. He also had water with us, just in case we needed. About the run, we decided to go for the longer run ( ~10km) which would include more sights. The terrain is ok to tackle with road running shoes as long as the sole is a bit more rigid. At the end of the run, he went in with us to the Museum that was where we parked the car, although it was about to close. Very nice insight to the wild life of Finland and also into outdoor activities ( during both summer and winter). At the end he drove us back to the hotel. If you like trail running and have a pair of running shoes with you, the Nuksio running tour is a must.

I had a wonderful run along the coast with Terhi. We ran about 1 hour and ten minutes and Terhi explained the landmarks we passed by. As a runner of a landlocked country, I particularly enjoyed running along the sea with a good view of the marvelous little islands. Thanks Terhi

We brought our 4 year-old on the tour and Terry (sp?) even brought a stroller for us. We were very happy to avoid the tour buses. Our guide was knowledgeable, professional, and fun. We got out of the city and into a nice quiet area for a while. She was willing to customize the tour for us and especially to accommodate our little one. I definitely would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get a little exercise in and see the sites.
