« Schedule »
Your host will meet you at the Helsinki Airport. You will be transferred to your hotel located in the Helsinki city center. Evening is yours to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere this nordic capital has to offer!
After good breakfast we hop on the van and drive to the starting place of our canoe and hiking tour. We launch the canoes and paddle on wilderness lakes of Nuuksio National Park. In the middle of our excursion we’ll have a coffee and snack break by the lake. You can also dip into the clean water forest lake on the break. At some point we leave our canoes on the shore and do a short hike to get to see what it is like in the forests of the National Park. We will carry the canoes a short distance between two lakes, so this requires a bit of sporty attitude. After the tour we will hop in the van and get to Haltia – The Finnish Nature Centre. We will enjoy our lunch in the restaurant. After the lunch you have free time to enjoy the exhibition at
the nature centre, swim in the nearby lake, or explore the area. The Tentsile Eco Camp is only a short walk away. You will have a evening snack basket to enjoy the evening and the summer night. Prepare yourself for a magical night in a two person treehouse-style tent and feel the nature around you.
Wake up in the middle of nature relaxed and ready for another day of adventure. After breakfast we hop in the van again and drive for about 15 minutes to a beautiful small lake.
Here we hop on our Stand Up Paddle Boards and explore this part of the National Park. Stand Up Paddling is easy and the boards are stable. We have one break and it is possible to climb a small hill, where you have beautiful views over the lake and the national park. After the break we will find our way back to the starting place.
On the way back we have lunch at Nature Centre. After lunch we will take you to the airport to get back home or back to the city centre to stay in Helsinki for a few additional nights!
