  • 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.
