What you'll do

Highlighting the natural beauty of Finland’s nature as well as its history

This unique day trip leaves from Helsinki and takes you on an easy and relaxing hike in a national park. Complete with a barbecue lunch by a lake and an afternoon stroll through the enchanting old town of Porvoo.

Visiting a national park is a MUST when travelling to Finland. Lucky for you, we have a professional wilderness guide to cook lunch over a campfire and tell your group many fascinating facts about Finnish nature and culture. During your time in the national park, you will have many opportunities to take photos, explore the forest and lake, and enjoy the lunch.

Experience the best of both worlds!

After a refreshing taste of nature, you will continue your tour on to the magical old town of Porvoo. A small and colourful village lined with cobblestone streets. We will visit the Porvoo Cathedral which dates back to the 13th-century, walk through the idyllic town square and handicraft market, visit Porvoo's famous chocolate shop and take photos from the picture-perfect bridge overlooking the old town and river.

We believe that nature heals. Surrounded by the natural wonders of the forest and the enchanting old town of Porvoo, this full-day experience outdoors will leave your batteries fully charged and in awe of Finland!
Other things to note
Private groups can be picked up directly from their accommodation or location of choice within Helsinki with a flexible starting time.

  • Identity verified
I am a founder of nature travel company Taiga Times and a professional wilderness guide. I have been hiking and camping for over a decade and truly love to spend my time outdoors with people, sharing what makes me the happiest.

I spent a year studying in one of Finlands top wilderness guide programs and have learned so much about this amazing country and the great outdoors that covers the land.

Growing up in Canada has played a major role in my love for the outdoors and I have realized living in Finland now that our "backyards" are one and the same.

I have spent many years backpacking all over the world but my favourite place to be is in the taiga forest which spreads across the northern hemisphere (Canada, Sweden, Finland, Russia etc..)

I want to share my love of the outdoors and help show how truly beautiful Finland is!
