    Experience the wild archipelago where the forest meets the sea

    Discover our wild archipelago where the forest meets the sea. Join us to experience a unique side of Finland, the quiet nature side. A walk in this nature reserve highlights why Finland is one of the best outdoor destinations.


    • A magnificent nature reserve with diverse habitats

    • Fantastic photo opportunities along the coast

    • An easy and rewarding walk for all levels of fitness

    • Prepared lunch and tea with a seaside view

    Our excursion trail passes over some of the oldest exposed bedrock in the world, many diverse habitats, and onwards to the open sea! Every season is unique in Porkkala; seeing wildlife is a regular occurrence in the nature reserve.

    Walking along the rolling rocks and beautiful coast, where we have the perfect place for a break, overlooking the Baltic Sea. Your guide will prepare a Finnish-style tasting menu lunch with tea to enjoy while you are free to take in the wonderful landscapes and find your peace in nature.

    Drop-off time: 1:30 P.M.

    A walk through diversity

    Our walk begins on a forest trail leading to an open-rock area which is
    the first display of the many diverse areas Porkkala has to offer. This
    open-rock area will give us the opportunity to see what effects coastal
    weather has on the near-by forest. Pine trees that are used to standing
    tall and true are forced to grow into short disfigured trees which reach
    for the forest inland.

    Historical remnants and a seaside lunch

    As we continue on our tour, we will pass through Finland’s iconic
    forests to see ruins from of the Nordic bronze age; an ancient burial
    cairn or stone grave which has since collapsed. This historical site
    gives insight into the funeral practices and social and religious
    structures of northern Europe more than three millennia ago.

    Shortly after passing the burial cairn we will find ourselves with a
    picturesque coastal view. There will be picnic tables to have a break
    and fill up on a prepared lunch with tea.

    Coastal views and wildlife 

    The last area of our walk is a highly regarded bird-watching area with magnificent views of the archipelago.
    After some exploration in this final area,  it is time to head back to civilization refreshed from this wholesome nature experience.
