The Healing Nature

It is not breaking news – the nature has a power to heal, calm and energize. In Finland, it has always been an important part of our culture to be able to freely roam the forests, parks, and sea- or lakesides nearby. In this country of thousand lakes and green gold, our forests, nature is widely utilized whether it is for nutrition, beauty, and well-being, production or just simply enjoying yourself.

Leave your worries behind and come experience what the best recreational nature areas of Helsinki have to offer, without leaving too far, just a bit east of the centre.
