Hiking and canoeing, or just relaxing, for outdoor people in this unique landscape


Fresh air, tranquility and nature - don't we all want to experience that! Only a 45 minute drive from the hectic city life and we are in the very unique Nuuksio National park with a typical Finnish scenery with lakes, green forests and high rocks.
Half of the trail consists of narrow paths and the other half is an easygoing path. Total trail is 1, 3 miles (2 km).
We are hungry after hiking, a pik nik at the open fire gives us more energy to start paddling the canoes, rowing or even sup- boarding. These activities are of course volunteer activities, it is also wonderful to just sit and listen to the silence and birds songs.

We will visit the reindeer farm, feed the lovely tame reindeers and have a coffee/ tea/juice with a sweet bun at open fire.

** Reindeer farm can be changed to Haltia Nature center. Please inquiry for more information.
