What are we going to do

Hike in one of the world’s largest archipelagos and experience breathtaking scenery!

Join us to experience a unique side of Finland, the quiet nature side. A walk in this nature reserve highlights why Finland is one of the best outdoor destinations. 🌿

⭐️ A magnificent nature reserve with diverse habitats
⭐️ Fantastic photo opportunities along the coast
⭐️ An easy and rewarding walk for all levels of fitness
⭐️ Prepared lunch and coffee/tea with seaside view

On your hike in Helsinki's wild archipelago, you will be learning about its many diverse habitats with a qualified wilderness guide. Over rolling rock trails and mossy forest floors, your nature walk will bring you the perfect place for a break overlooking the Baltic Sea. Your guide will prepare a Finnish-style lunch for you to enjoy. While lunch is being prepared, you will be free to take in the wonderful landscapes and find your peace in nature. 🍃

Every season is unique in Porkkala and seeing wildlife is a regular occurrence in the nature reserve. During the migration seasons (spring & fall), it is even possible to see great masses of birds covering the sky as they migrate. A spectacle to behold!

About Taiga Times - the Doer

Taiga Times is a nature travel company from Helsinki. At the core of our calling, Taiga Times is about connections. Connections with people and people with nature. Our love for the outdoors, travelling and meeting fellow explorers has forged the trail we walk today. 👣

Taiga Times was founded in 2019 by a Finnish-Canadian couple (Kiia & Jeff) whose greatest travel experiences have come from the wilderness. Finland is known for its nature and it's everywhere, even in the capital city of Helsinki. Still, it can be a bit difficult for travelers to explore nature by themselves, especially if they would like to visit the more off the beaten path destinations. 🌲

It is our goal to share this beautiful and pristine nature with everyone who visits Finland. 😊

Lovely experience to see the country outside of Helsinki. The lunch was delicious. Our hosts were kind, knowledgeable, and seemed genuinely excited to share their knowledge of Finland.
