A Half-day nature tour from Helsinki

Experience the magic of the taiga forest and the frozen sea

Join us to experience a unique side of Finland, the quiet nature side. A walk in this nature reserve highlights why Finland is one of the best outdoor destinations year-round 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 excursion begins on a nature trail with countless smaller trails made by deers, foxes, moose and more!

Highlights:
• A magnificent nature reserve of diverse habitats
• Fantastic photo opportunities along the coast
• An easy and rewarding walk for all levels of fitness
• A delicious lunch cooked over a warm fire

 

Wildlife, Frozen lands, Campfires & Tranquility

Following the frozen forest trails of the archipelago, we will pass by gnarled pines and tall spruces to the beautifully desolate and cold Baltic Sea. Your guide will make a fire in a nearby wilderness shelter and prepare a warm lunch while you have time to freely explore the surrounding area, takes photos and find your own peace in nature.

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

From Start to Finish: Your Journey for the Day

A walk through diversity
Our walk begins on a forest trail leading into an open-rock area which is the first display of the many diverse areas Porkkala has to offer. This open-rock area will give us the opportunity to see what effects coastal weather has on the near-by forest. Pine trees that are used to standing tall and true are forced to grow into short disfigured trees which reach for the forest inland.

Dramatic landscapes where the forest meets the sea
As the walk continues, we will find ourselves with a picturesque coastal view and two wilderness shelters where we will build a fire to prepare our lunch. Along the coast we can explore the land and seascapes to admire the raw beauty where the forest meets the sea.

Warming up by a campfire
After some exploration, we will warm up and enjoy a Finnish-style lunch over a campfire. After the lunch it is time to head back to the starting point and get back to the civilization. Perhaps an afternoon sauna would be a nice way to end the day!
