Half-day tour from Helsinki

Experience the wild archipelago where the forest meets the sea

Join us to experience a unique side of Helsinki, the quiet nature side. A relaxing walk in this nature reserve highlights why Finland is one of the best outdoor destinations and why Finns enjoy their peace and quiet.

This day trip from Helsinki takes us to Porkkalanniemi; a scenic peninsula that reaches out into the midst of one of the world’s largest archipelagos. Our hike begins on a nature trail surrounded by wild berries, deer trails, outlandish pines and the many curiosities of the Finnish forest.

• A magnificent nature reserve of diverse habitats
• Fantastic photo opportunities along the coast
• An easy and rewarding walk for all levels of fitness
• Finnish-style lunch with a seaside view


Wildlife, Seascapes, Ruins & Tranquility

On your nature walk around the wild archipelago, you will be learning about its many diverse habitats with a qualified wilderness guide. Over rolling rock trails and mossy forest floors, your nature walk will bring you the perfect place for a break overlooking the Baltic Sea. Your guide will prepare a Finnish-style lunch for you to enjoy. While lunch is being prepared, you will be free to take in the wonderful landscapes and find your peace in nature.

Every season is unique in Porkkala and seeing wildlife is a regular occurrence in the nature reserve. During the migration seasons (spring & fall), it is even possible to see great masses of birds covering the sky as they migrate. A spectacle to behold!

We believe that nature heals. Surrounded by natural wonders and incredibly diverse habitats this half-day in the archipelago will rekindle your love for the great outdoors.
