What to expect

Join this small group magical evening walk and experience the midnight sun, one of Finland's natural wonders which has the power to amaze and surprise viewers all at once.

Starting from Helsinki, you will head to the Porkkala peninsula archipelago where you will begin your walk through winding forest trails with the midnight sun laying over the horizon. Your guide will talk to you about the coastal region of Finland and the local wildlife.

After an hour of walking under the midnight sun, you will get to a beautiful viewpoint overlooking the Baltic sea where you can truly learn what it means to experience the “nightless night”. Because of Finland's location so far north, there are many long days where the sun never fully sets below the horizon, or sets only for a few hours, and there is no better way to witness it than on the coast of a beautiful nature reserve.

While your guide prepares an evening snack and coffee, there will be plenty of time to slow down and observe the incredible change in the nature of the light, take photos, explore, converse, and enjoy this magical phenomenon of the midnight sun.

After your snack break you will explore the archipelago some more, before walking back to the starting point feeling refreshed and rejuvenated from this wonderful and authentic experience in nature.
