Guided Tour from Helsinki to Nuuksio National Park in Vihti and Espoo, Finland


 Coronavirus, Covid-19 Situation

Currently there are no government forced restrictions to my service, but as we should keep contacts to minimum and as there’s no traveling, I’m going on my hikes by myself and sitting on my computer, alone. If you’re bored and want to plan a trip to Finland once this thing has passed, you can ask me anything on WhatsApp or email.

Stay safe and we’ll meet on the trails once again!



Hello my friends! Welcome to Finland and to Nuuksio National Park, right next to Helsinki. My name is Mikko and you can think of me as your Finnish Friend, who loves being out in the nature. Let's go and have an adventure together!

I’ve built my guided tours based on things you need to think about when visiting Nuuksio National Park, to make it as easy as possible for you to just enjoy your authentic experience, in all the best places, at any time of year.

Everything has been taken care of for you. You don’t need to worry about transport, weather and clothing or other equipment needed, food or drinks, finding your way or finding peace.

All you need to do is walk in nature. Let your mind and body wander in the forest.


Guided Tour – A Day Trip to Nuuksio National Park

My service in English includes:

All the typical activities Finnish people go to nature for, like picking berries, foraging mushrooms, hiking, swimming and snowshoeing. You don’t need to book them separately.

Relaxed schedule for your stress-free experience. We can go when it suits you and stay in the national park for a long time. In 2019 my average time from picking up customers to taking them back was 11 hours.

Privacy and personal experience for you or your small group, outside the main routes. I only do private tours for 1 to 4 people.

Clothing, shoes and other equipment you need in any weather, any time of year. You will only need clothing you’re comfortable to be in your home or hotel. All the outdoor clothing, shoes and equipment according to the weather are included. You can change your clothing inside, in a warm place.

Items you can borrow are:

  • Waterproof rain jacket, trousers, shoes, gloves and a hat to keep your whole body dry.
  • Warm jacket, shirt, trousers, shoes with ice spikes, socks, gloves, beanie and scarf for cold weather and winter.
  • Waterproof backpack for your personal items.
  • Summer hat, socks, headlamp, small towel, sit mat and insect protection.
  • Walking poles and snowshoes

Food and drinks for the day from traditional Finnish ingredients that tell the story of what people have eaten in this land. While walking we have snacks and cold or hot to drink depending on the weather, then we have a lunch and tea or coffee, in a shelter if needed, after which we have snacks for the rest of the day.

Transport from your hotel or Airbnb to the national park and back. You will see the landscape change from city center to suburbs and to forest. During the drive you can learn about the national park, use free internet through Wi-Fi or talk about anything. Drinking water and small snacks are available all the time.

Guiding on footpaths with no signs that take us to really beautiful places, only some locals use these trails. By going into the wild we can have the forest all to ourselves, have the peace and quiet that Finnish forest is all about. Guide’s services also include telling you about Finnish nature and helping you in every way possible.

1-on-1 with me, a friendly, open and caring Finnish person. Ask about anything, talk about anything.

Internet connection for the time you are with me.

What My Customers Think of Me

Wow what an experience! Today was what my husband and I wanted and MORE! Mikko is so knowledgeable and he was so accommodating with our son who is nearly 2. He found a baby carrier for us with no additional charge. We really felt a day with no stress, all we did was just to go with Mikko. Mikko had all the clothing, food, drinks, snacks. Mikko was so thoughtful and never rushed us! It was just a wonderful adventure for our family! Definitely recommend Mikko!
