What to expect

Join this spring day hike in a national park where you will have the chance see the forest awaken and enjoy a lakeside lunch by the campfire.

This day trip starts in Helsinki and you will be driven to Liesjärvi national park, one of Finland's oldest national parks. It has a breathtaking landscape which has been carved by glaciers and shrouded by old growth forest which still thrives today.

Once there, you will be able to breathe and feel the fresh spring air settling in after a long winter and see the forest awaken as new plants bloom and wildlife returns to its spring habitat.

    This spring walk offers many interesting topics to experience and learn about from the migrations of birds, open-fire cooking, natural medicines and foods which are readily available from the forest such as spruce tips.
