This is such a beautiful national park. So well maintained and the trails are really marked out with detail. Felt so safe hiking here. The people here are super helpful.
Serene forest with great mountain lakes, public fire places and even a sauna (open on Sunday only). It can be reached by public transport (bus) from Helsinki city or by car.
A very nice park easy to reach from Helsinki. Look for the trails - we did one of them (1 hour) and it was really beautiful.
One of the best outdoors location in Southern Finland. Good spots to do some grilling and camping. Very easy to navigate in as there's lots of signs.
Well maintained public space. Good restroom facilities. Hiking paths could be indicated a lot better. Good biking, horseback and langlauf tracks.
