What are we going to do

Join us on a truly unique excursion into Sipoonkorpi National Park by nightfall. This short evening trip will start from Helsinki and take you into a national park which is only 30 minutes by car from the city center. During the evening, it will be very quiet in the park as most visitors have gone home already.

Walking through the forest after dark is a wonderful experience and it awakes our imagination. Equipped with a professional guide and flashlights your journey will no doubt be safe! Your guide will be there to tell you interesting facts about the surrounding area and help identify and odd wildlife sounds you may come across in the dark. With luck we might hear nocturnal mammals and birds who lives in Sipoonkorpi National Park. 🌚

Our walk takes place on a very wide and well-maintained trail which is easy to navigate in the night. After a short walk through the forest we will end up at the campfire location where we can drink hot juice and barbecue Finnish sausages. On our break we have change for stargazing on clear nights and enough time to relax and warm up by the fire. 🔥

Highlights:

⭐️ Explore a national park at night in a safe environment
⭐️ Look and listen for the mysterious nocturnal animals
⭐️ Enjoy a campfire with a barbecue and hot drink
⭐️ Great opportunity to stargaze and see the moonrise

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. 😊
