What to expect

Experience a unique side of Finland with this day trip which takes you from Helsinki to Porkkalanniemi, a scenic peninsula in the midst of one of the world’s largest archipelagos, and take a walk through a nature reserve before enjoying lunch with a seaside view.

Upon meeting your guide, you will be driven to Pokkala where you will begin your walk on a forest trail leading to an open-rock area. During your walk you will pass an ancient burial cairn dating back to the Nordic bronze age, as well as several lookout points and resting areas along the way. You will stop for a picnic lunch with a picturesque coastal view.

Porkkala is also a great place to see swans in the summer and migrations of birds in the spring and fall. During twilight and nightfall it is quite common to see deer and foxes in the area, and with a bit of extra luck you might be able to spot a moose!

A walk in this park highlights why Finland is one of the best outdoor destinations and why Finns enjoy their peace and quiet. Surrounded by natural wonders and incredibly diverse habitats, this half-day in the archipelago will leave
you wanting to rekindle your love for the outdoors.
