Taiga Excursion


National Park tour from Helsinki

Join us on this authentic nature experience in one of Finland’s oldest national parks: Liesjärvi

Exploring a national park is a must when visiting Finland! There is no better way to spend your time in Helsinki than under the great swaying canopy of the Taiga forest.

Join this full-day tour from Helsinki to Liesjärvi National Park to escape the city and experience pristine nature trails and a Finnish-style lunch in the national park.

Explore the winding trails of an esker, identify wild foods, and lose yourself in the natural wonders of the forest
Every season offers new and curious opportunities to learn about our environment. Spring with its crisp blue skies and icy-lakes, Summer's juicy blueberries and lush green forests, and our favorite time, Autumn! Wild mushrooms and earthly hues of yellows, oranges, and reds shroud the forest.

We wholeheartedly believe in the saying "good food, good mood" which is why we are committed to providing wholesome dishes and a Finnish-style dining experience within the forest. Our menu is changing with the seasons and always uses quality and fresh ingredients. Every lunch will be cooked over a campfire and comes with coffee/tea and dessert.

Another important detail about this excursion is our destination. We are the only company based in Helsinki to operate in Liesjärvi National Park! It is a truly hidden gem in Southern Finland and we want to share this extraordinary place with fellow nature enthusiasts from around the world.

Highlights:

• Experience pristine nature in an uncrowded national park
• Learn about local plants and wildlife from a professional guide
• Test your senses and feel the benefits of nature
• Finnish-style dining experience in the forest
