We say hiking, but it could be rambling, or just sitting by one of many lakes admiring the extreme wilderness beauty that is the Nuuksio National Park – or simply watching the wildlife in its natural setting. So close to the city, yet quite literally a world of its own, this is where the locals escape to unwind, and reconnect with the wild – and themselves.Just a short drive from the city center, the Nuuksio National Park is like a microcosm of everything you’d expect of a Nordic wilderness, from ancient oak and pine forest and stunning lakes of all sizes, to rugged granite rockfaces, swamplands and a unique wildlife.After exploring through the purest forests, take a canoe onto a picturesque lake and navigate the still waters with only the ducks, gulls and geese for company before returning to shore for a well-deserved barbeque of Finnish delights.A real chance to enjoy the health benefits of nature – and just a short drive away from the bustling city center!Itineray of the trip:09.00-10.30 Pick up and Transfer to Nuuksio National Park10.30-12.00 1 Hour Hiking with Our Knowledgeable Nature Guides12.00-13.00 1 Hour Canoeing on the Pure lake of Kaitlampi in the National Park13.00-14.00 Outdoor BBQ the Finnish Style14.00-15.30 Transfer to Helsinki and Drop off
