What are we going to do

See the city through new eyes – combine sightseeing, exercise and nature experience!

Urban hiking is an activity where you walk long distances in the city, exploring urban enviroment on and off the beaten path. We follow footpaths and nature trails and stop for sights and other interesting spots along the way.

This tour takes you to Töölö district, introducing some well-known sights in Helsinki, as well as interesting local spots and city nature in the area. Route: Kamppi – Hietaniemi – Sibelius park – Laakso/Central park – Töölö bay – Kamppi.

We'll mostly walk on pavements but also on gravel paths and forest trails. Wear comfortable shoes and carry some water and snack with you. The route length is about 10 km, we'll have a brisk walking pace and several short stops along the way.

Meeting point: Eteläinen rautatiekatu 8, behind Tennispalatsi building.

Your guide: Virva Niissalo, Kuntovirkku

Virkistysvartti pysäytti totaalisesti päivän aikana päässä pyörineet ajatukset ja toi rentoutumisen tunteen.

It’s nice to have someone call you up and motivate you to get outside and guide you through some restorative exercises in nature, physical or mental. Much more effective than using an app! It’s like letting off steam with a friend while going for a walk, something that’s not possible for all us, particularly at the moment. A real boost for the day or even for the week.
