Espoo and Nuuksio National Park invite international visitors to explore an unspoilt wilderness just half an hour from Helsinki


Next summer, visitors to Espoo and Nuuksio can choose to spend a night in the wild at the Tentsile Ecocamp close to the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia, or enjoy a boat ride with the “Rower of Nuuksio”, among many other things. At this year’s Matka Nordic Travel Fair, Visit Espoo highlighted visitor services in the Nuuksio National Park, together with NuuksioResort, an organisation comprised of 19 local businesses.
Recently, Lonely Planet and National Geographic Traveller both ranked Finland as one of their top travel destination for 2017. One of the reasons highlighted was Finland’s unique nature. Nuuksio National Park is an excellent place to enjoy a wilderness experience close to the Finnish capital, Helsinki. In Nuuksio, visitors can tend to reindeer, go snowshoeing, enjoy canoeing, forage and prepare wild food and discover the splendours of Finland’s flora and fauna at the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia. There is a range of accommodation available to suit all tastes, from camping to a hotel.
Nuuksio is fast becoming established as a popular Stopover destination. Visit Espoo expects the number of Chinese visitors in particular to increase in the near future. Last summer, for the first time ever, the largest number of visitors to Espoo by country of origin came from China. In addition to the area’s outstanding nature, Chinese visitors were attracted by Espoo’s reputation for innovation.
