Nuuksio National Park – fresh air, nature, tranquility. Away from the hectic city life but still next door. Nuuksio National Park is only 40 minutes from Helsinki.
Within easy reach of Helsinki you can escape into wild natural settings and experience nature, lovely lakes, green forests and clean air. With its marked trails, cooking shelters and camping sites Nuuksio is ideal for short hiking trips lasting one or two days.
Nuuksio National Park forms the western part of the so called Nuuksio lake uplands, the most extensive and ecologically important continuous backwoods area in the Uusimaa Region. Because it is located in southern Finland and affected by broken bedrock, the park consists of an intricate mosaic of habitats, where dozens of threatened and near threatened species live.
