Sipoonkorpi nature park hike

Sipoonkorpi nature park is well known nature park in Southern Finland. Sipoonkorpi is well known, but not so popular among tourists as there are more unwalked paths, it’s harder to reach. It’s ”real” wilderness though and popular among locals.

Sipoonkorpi is beautiful and worth of visiting, whether it is winter, autumn, spring or summer. It is good place to visit to experience Finnish nature.

I will drive us to the big National Park of Sipoonkorpi. There we will going on an easy hike through the forest and enjoy the calm atmosphere.

At autumn we might find some berries or mushrooms that we can eat and see the colourful autumn colors of the forest (called Ruska in Finnish).

At summer we’ll just enjoy the unique green colors of the Finnish forest. We might go for a swim in the lake aswell.

Winter is special in Finland: there is snow everywhere and you get to experience the true northern climate.

During the hike we’ll stop and make a fire at a campsite and grab a bite to eat and drink

Sauna is considered a national institution in Finland. There are more than 3 million saunas in Finland. Kuusijärvi has a public smoke saunas (normal saunas too) and sauna is a must-do for all visitors in Finland!

After the we hike in Sipoonkorpi nature park, I can drop you to the local public sauna in Kuusijärvi near the park – if you want – and you can take the local bus back to the city. Winter time you can try ice swimmig there!

There is also restaurant and you can eat there and spend as long time there as you want. You can take local bus back to the Helsinki center (about 30 min.) I will give you printed bus timetable so it´s very easy for you to get back.

Sauna fee is 7€/person. (children 4€/person). Towel rent is 4 €/person. Also possible to rent swimming suits Note that this is not private sauna, so you will meet local sauna enthusiastic and get to know each others just like we do, in sauna. Everybody are equal in sauna, no matter what you profession or background is!

Kuusijärvi saunas are public saunas and open for everyone. You can swim in a Lake Kuusijärvi year-round. At wintertime there is a ice-hole. Kuusijärvi also has the only public Smoke Saunas within the greater Helsinki Metropolitan area. All smoke saunas are open during wintertime. Smoke saunas are unisex-saunas and therefore swimming suits are required.
