    Wonderful day in the Finish Taiga
    AlexandruCosmin_O, Aug 2022
    We had a great day with David, he took us on a very nice path with wonderful landscape. We had the chance to pick various berries. The mushroom soup was delicious.
    Unforgettable experience

    Immersful journey into a Finnish National Park. Guide both entertaining and informative. We felt like Finns in the forest. Homemade mushroom soup was delicious.
    Fabulous Nature Hike
    Shari_S, Jun 2022
    This experience was amazing. David picked us up at our hotel and drove us to a beautiful national park. We not only hiked, but ate wild berries and learned about the various edible plants in the park. David provided snacks and a wonderful mushroom soup for lunch. This is an experience to not miss!!
    My Finnish Hike

    I enjoyed hiking in Nuksio park. The natural beauty of the forest and lakes was uplifting. David, the guide was very knowledgeable. He brought mushroom soup made from mushrooms gathered earlier. This was a lovely touch.

    This was a fantastic way to kick off our short trip to Helsinki. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide. He brought homemade mushroom soup and some classic Finnish snacks and drinks, which really rounded out the whole experience. Loved it!!
    Walking outside Helsinki

    My travel partner was busy during the day so I booked this trip for just me and was the only one. David was funny! And informative and fun to spend the morning with. He planned everything out and even though I’m not athletic I managed because he planned something doable—a loop through a trail in Espoo. I’d highly recommend! I had a really memorable morning. And the price was very reasonable — especially for my own pickup, he carried all the snacks and meal, the food was delish, etc. My only regret is that my schedule didn’t work out to take another tour! I’m a former cruise ship worker and I’ve been on more than one forgettable tour; this is the real deal.

    I think it's the highlight of my trip to Helsinki. The hiking tour is suitable for anyone, including an absolute beginner of hiking like me. The tour guide was a very nice guy. He not only was engaging actively and friendly with the participants but also offered a pair of suitable shoes for hiking to me when he found my shoes not suitable for hiking in high heights of snow. I would recommend this hiking tour to anyone with no reserve.
    One of the Highlights of our Trip!
    Halla_H, Feb 2022
    We had such a fantastic time with our guide, David. We were booked on a very snowy day but it was amazing and he helped us make the very most of the experience! David provided snow shoes for us, took us through the forest, and offered us Finnish drinks and food. He was very knowledgeable about the culture and forest. Seeing the forest on our hike was one of the very best parts about our trip to Helsinki. 10/10 would recommend!
    A very nice trip ...

    A perfect Hiking in Nuuksio Nationalpark
    Simone_F, Aug 2021
    It was a wonderful Hiking experience in Nuuksio Nationalpark with David. The pickup at my hotel was right on time and the car was very clean. During the short drive to the park, I learned a lot about the Sami culture and the history of Finland. David offered some options for hiking. The Taiga is a very beautiful and different landscape with many small lakes. David knows a lot about fauna and flora. We tasted blueberries and granberries and even plants, I didn't know before. At the end, we had a very delicious self made mushroom soup together and David brought me back to hotel. He is very friendly and helpfully and our time passed by very quickly. I'm looking forward to book another trip with him! Thank you very much, David! All the best for you!
