4 tuntia ja 30 minuuttia
Join us and experience the quiet and magical winter forest and freezing waters of the archipelago. A walk along the frozen coast highlights why Finland is one of the best outdoor destinations year-round. This half-day excursion starts from Helsinki and takes you to the Porkkala peninsula.
• Lookout points of breathtaking archipelago scenery
• Amazing photographing opportunities
• Easy walk designed for all levels of fitness
• Campfire lunch and coffee/tea with a seaside view
Following the frozen forest trails of the archipelago, we will pass by gnarled pines and tall spruces to the beautifully desolate and cold Baltic Sea. Your guide will make a fire in a nearby wilderness shelter and prepare a warm lunch while you have time to freely explore the surrounding area, take photos and find your peace in nature.
Our walk begins on a forest trail leading into an open-rock area which is the first display of the many diverse areas Porkkala has to offer.
This open-rock area will allow us to see what effects coastal weather has on the nearby 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.
As the walk continues, we will find ourselves with a picturesque coastal view and two wilderness shelters where we will build a fire to prepare our lunch. Along the coast, we can explore the land and seascapes to admire the raw beauty where the forest meets the sea.
After some exploration, we will warm up and enjoy a Finnish-style lunch over a campfire.
After lunch, it is time to head back to civilization refreshed from this wholesome nature experience.
