5-Star Guided Hiking Tours in Finland


My name is Mikko and you can think of me as your Finnish Friend who loves being out in nature.

  Reasons to Go With Me

My hikes are private for you, you don’t have to go with a big group of unknown people.

Freedom of hiking distances and schedules, and your own peace and quiet thanks to the small group size.

You can borrow all hiking and camping gear needed, they’re included in the prices.

You don’t want a heavy backpack to ruin all the joys of being in nature, we use ultralight gear on my trips.

I can adapt the tours to your wishes and needs, for example if you want pickup from your hotel and drop off at the airport, or to come with children or a dog, or if you have physical disabilities.

I can accommodate almost every diet.

There are no booking fees or payments in advance, you only pay after the tour.

I’ve built my tours based on things you need to think about when visiting national parks around Helsinki, 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 camping gear, 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.

We hike responsibly and respect nature. We leave only footprints behind.

We are used to hiking on our own doing our navigation and making all decisions ourselves. So we were a little hesitant to take a ‘guided’ hike but Mikko far exceeded our expectations. He was well organised, entirely flexible, and extremely knowledgeable about local flora and fauna and Finnish culture and history. He was happy for us to walk in silence if we wished or would happily engage in stimulating and interesting discussions. All route planning and decisions were made together. All meals and snacks were wholesome, healthy and very tasty! Taking a hike with Mikko proved to be an excellent way of enabling us to get out into the Finnish wilderness with ease and without all the hassle or need to do in-depth research ourselves. He genuinely appears to run these trips having changed careers a while ago because he really enjoys doing it as was apparent from our experience and I would highly recommend him.
I am so glad we happened across Mikko when researching how to go for a hiking trip. We are in Finland on our sailing boat and wanted to explore more of inland Finland and do some overnight camping Mikko was flexible, had all the light weight gear we would need (although we did have some of our own) He is a font of knowledge about nature and Finland. We learned from him about how to identify the different trees and wildlife. Having an ant highway pointed out running along the side of our track was something I would never have known if hiking on our own. Mikko was completely flexible to our preferences in terms of pace, distance, timings for breaks. We swam at least twice a day in beautiful clean lakes.
Our family of four (two kids 14 and 19 years old) had an amazing day at the Nuuksio National Park with Mikko. Mikko was so knowledgeable, kind, and entertaining. It was absolutely magical, beautiful and so relaxing. It was like stepping into a different world: we walked, we chopped wood, we had a nice camp fire and ate next to the lake. We picked berries and discovered so many marvels of this beautiful National Park. If you have any chance, I highly recommend to book a trip with Mikko. What a wonderful guide he is. 🙂


Transport from Helsinki to Nuuksio National Park in minibus.

My tours include transport from your hotel, Airbnb or the airport to our destination and back. There’s plenty of space in my car to change your clothes and stretch your legs.

I’ll pick you up when you want to go.

I can pick you up from the airport if you want to go to nature straight away, or if you’re just on a stopover or layover in Helsinki, or pick you up from your hotel and take you to the airport after our trip. You can leave your luggage in my car.

Hiking and camping gear, clothing, shoes and other equipment

Hiking and camping gear are included on tours

You can borrow a backpack, tent, sleeping bag and pad, pillow, jackets, trousers, shoes, gloves, beanies and caps, socks, snowshoes, walking poles, towel and everything else you might need on a camping trip or a day hike.

You’ll stay dry, you’ll stay warm. Unless you go swimming.

And you can keep your own clothes clean by borrowing mine.

Food, Snacks and Drinks

Real coffee on hiking tours

All meals you need during the trips are included from the moment you step in to my minibus.

Eat breakfast before I pick you up. On day hikes I provide snacks, drinks and a lunch in Finnish style. On longer camping trips all the snacks, drinks and meals are included. That means you get breakfasts, snacks while walking, lunch and dinner after we set camp. Warm drinks like coffee or tea you can get whenever you want.

Let me know about your diets or allergies on the booking form, I’ll accommodate everyone.


Nuuksio National Park in spring in May

You don’t need to know anything about hiking to go on my tours. I’ll take care of you.

Often on day hikes you don’t even need to carry a backpack, on overnight hiking and camping trips you’ll carry a very light pack. Otherwise you can choose how much you’ll participate in the work like setting up tents and packing up, or cooking.

Because we’ll hike in a small group without a predetermined plan and schedule I can change our route in the middle of the hike to accommodate your wishes or the conditions.

I want to show you the best places, but the most important thing on every hike is always safety, and that we’ll return to the car by walking on our own feet. As your guide I’ll make sure that happens.

Being your guide also means telling you about Finnish nature and helping you in every way possible. Let me know of your wishes and I’ll do my best to fulfil them.

Relaxed Schedule

Nuuksio National Park in fall. Having my morning coffee by a beautiful lake. Hiking near Helsinki, Finland.

I want you to have a stress-free experience, we can go when it suits you and stay in the destination for long. There’s no schedule for preplanned route or programs to follow, we are free to go and do as we please.

If you decide you just want to sit down in peace and sense the world around you, we can do that. If you want to pick berries or mushrooms, we can do that. If you want to see as many lakes as possible and walk a long distance, we can do that. If you want to spend time alone with your loved one in the middle of a quiet forest, you can do that.

All the Typical Finnish Activities

Nuuksio National Park in summer in July. Handful of wild blueberries, or actually bilberries. Nature near Helsinki.

We can do all the things Finnish people do when walking in nature, like pick berries, forage mushrooms, swim in the lakes, snowshoe, or just relax in the peace and quiet.

You don’t need to book different activities, they’re all included according to season and weather.

Privacy and Personal Experience

Nuuksio National Park in fall. Finnish forest on quiet autumn days in November. Hiking near Helsinki.

My tours are private for you or your small group, and I want to take you to places where you can have the peace Finland’s nature is all about.

By being alone we can have much purer, personal experience of the natural world around us. We’ll experience small moments in time that we are the only witnesses to.
