A truly memorable and unique experience in a spectacular scenery

Nuuksio is a marvellous place, the surrounding beautiful nature makes you feel like you're in paradise. But it's so much better if you have Mikhail as your guide. We couldn't have had a better guide - he was absolutely brilliant, very informative, knowledgeable and polite. The tour was filled with breathtaking views which we would never find on our own, interesting facts and insights, and several fascinating activities like a typical Finnish outdoor BBQ, finding animal trails, picking mushrooms and berries and discovering the local flora and fauna. This trip to Nuuksio was a truly rewarding and memorable experience.

A great way to spend a day in Helsinki!

Mikhail was such a helpful guide. He picked us up from our accommodation and also explained the transport system to us. On our way back, he even detoured to show us exactly how and where to take the train to the airport, which lift to take assuming we had luggage with us. It was very sweet of him. Mikhail's knowledge of Nuuksio and the flora and fauna made the trek even more meaningful. The BBQ sausages and Karjalan Piirakka (transitional Karelian pastry filled with rice in a rye dough based pastry) was so yummy! An unforgettable experience with Mother Nature.

My day hike of Nuuksio was wonderful, and Mikhail is a great guide! A+

I did a full day hike of Nuuksio National Park, and every bit of it was wonderful. Mikhail is a great guide, very personable, incredibly knowledgeable, and has a knack for quickly ascertaining the interests of the participants, and modifying the tour accordingly. I would certainly recommend taking a day hike with him. Thanks again Mikhail!

We loved the hike, we went through the forest and saw a few of the lakes that cover the region. The guide was super friendly and has expert knowledge about the park, he even cooked us sausages!

Knowledgeable guide

Excellent guide: very knowledgeable. Nice lunch, too. And the trip was impeccably timed. Highly recommended.
