170 € » Book Now


Repovesi National Park has the best views in Southern Finland from it’s high cliffs above the forest and lakes. This is the place to go if you want to see panoramic landscapes of Finland’s nature on a day trip from Helsinki.

It’s not just about the views though. The national park is a great place to experience the taiga, boreal forest, with it’s pines and spruces, clear blue lakes and super clean air.

Repovesi National Park is two and half an hour drive away from Helsinki.

Compared to visiting Nuuksio National Park or hiking on the Baltic Sea coast, you get less time in nature, but better views, more remote location and you get to see rural Finland on the way there.

This hiking tour is all-inclusive. Just step into my minibus, I take care of everything else.

Top tip: let’s go on a weekday if possible, locals crowd places at weekends.
