Red foxes, mountain hares, and moose leave their tracks
Winter allows us to witness the forest in its mystic grandeur. Snow gently falls and blankets the entire forest, embracing the trees and creating a peaceful silence throughout the woods. As the days grow shorter and the nights longer, we can find comfort by the fire, warm food, and through the company of others.
This day trip starts from Helsinki and we will bring you to one of Finland’s oldest national parks, Liesjärvi. Considered the hidden gem of Southern Finland, Liesjärvi remains free from the overly populated crowds of international visitors, letting us explore the park in peace.
During the winter season you will witness an enchanted view of the national parkIt would seem as though the forest is asleep during these frigid months, but with care you are able to see tracks of the animals such as the red fox, mountain hare, and moose.

From Start to Finish: Your Journey for the Day
A Peaceful Walk through the ForestOnce we have arrived at Liesjärvi National Park, the group will begin their walk through the forest on Liesjärvis swaying winter trails. Your guide will be able to provide details about the forest and wildlife specific to Finland. The small group size offers an intimate experience in nature and allows your guide to attend to individual questions and needs.
Arrival and a Warming CampfireAfter one hour of walking, we will arrive at a beautiful wilderness hut which will be heated by our campfire. While your guide starts the fire and begins to prepare a traditional Finnish-style lunch and campfire coffee, there will be plenty of time to take photos, explore, throw snowballs, converse, and enjoy the tranquility of Finland’s Taiga forest.
Snow-covered SprucesAfter lunch we will continue to explore the beauty of Liesjärvi under the towering snow-covered spruces. Walking for about one hour, the group will make their way back to the starting point, feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from this wonderful experience in nature.
