In Nuuksio it is possible to escape the busy capital city and experience nature. With its marked trails, cooking shelters and camping sites Nuuksio is ideal for short hiking trips lasting one or two days.

Nuuksio National Park forms the western part of the so called Nuuksio lake uplands, the most extensive and ecologically important continuous backwoods area in the Uusimaa Region. Because it is located in southern Finland and affected by broken bedrock, the park consists of an intricate mosaic of habitats, where dozens of threatened and near threatened species live.
