This is a fantastic trip - not only for the canoeing portion but also for learning about Finnish nature. Olli greeted us warmly when we pulled up to the boathouse and his generous nature and happy sense of humor continued throughout our whole trip. We went as a family of 6 - kids ages 12-18. We began with an introduction to paddling and steering the canoes and Olli gave us a choice of possible routes. We paddled the 4 canoes (pairs of us and Olli in a solo canoe) around one of the Nuuksio lakes and then pulled up on shore to carry the boats between lakes. While onshore Olli showed us how to forage some of the local mushrooms and berries and explained a lot of the surroundings - both the national park landscape and the flora/fauna such as the types of lichen and the types of mammals living in the area; his knowledge of wilderness is deep. We then paddled a bit more and stopped for a snack and a swim. The snack was delicious and the swimming delightful! We are looking forward to taking the canoes out again soon and highly recommend a nature experience with Feel the Nature. Everything was safe and easy - they had vests, dry sacs, etc. We were able to take all our things safely in a large wet bag they provided. Olli even took lovely photos too which he sent to us! It would be a great first stop in Nuuksio and Olli’s knowledge of the park would certainly help you plan the rest of your visit.

We had a great time visiting Nuuksio National Park with Feel the Nature. We saw some amazing scenery hiking through the beautiful park and our guide gave us helpful context about the tiny birds still active in winter and the different vegetation that we could see. After a thoughtfully prepared break for tea or coffee we went to the reindeer park for a visit and feed. Some of the reindeer were still growing out their new antlers. The reindeer feeding was a great way to finish an awesome tour.

Our canoeing tour was awesome. Mika is very knowledgeable and easygoing. Park was just 40 minutes away from Helsinki and it is absolutely worth visiting. It was filled with mushrooms and we even were able to find few blueberries and lingonberries at the time of visit. Canoes were heavy to carry but the experience was well worth it. We stopped at the firepit to drink lingonberry compote Mika made and taste Finnish pastry, that was a very nice experience. I loved our trip and would love to go mushroom and berry picking next time.

This was wonderful--absolutely the greatest highlight of our trip to Finland. We did the half-day berry-picking and mushroom-foraging hike in Nuuksio and I could not recommended it more highly--it is a real can't miss! Our guide Olli was very kind and gave us great information about the berries, the mushrooms, the forest and Finland in general. The hike was beautiful. It was also a perfect level of difficulty, in that I (an experienced hiker) and my boyfriend (not much of a hiker at all and also who wears a leg brace due to a disability) were both able to enjoy it. I did not feel like it was too easy, and he did not think it was too hard! The park is beautiful and quiet, and the foraging was a lot of fun (as was the end of the hike when we ate what we had found, along with Finnish pastries and coffee that Olli brought). Don't hesitate for a moment about booking this activity. It is a must-do and I look forward to doing another excursion with Feel the Nature when we return to Finland in the future!

We applied for optional lunch and reindeer park tour. The guide was friendly and taught us how to canoe kindly. It was the nice experience. The guide cooked us soup and coffee. We also went to reindeer park. Reindeers were really cute.
