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

This was a really nice experience. I went outside to a forest, concentrated and saw details in nature. The exercise helps you to see the positive things in life and gives you also practical tools which really help. Thank you!

This was something really needed and appreciated during a hectic day, loved every moment and felt like new born afterwards! I'd recommend a Nature Boost/Metsämieli experience for everyone - thank you so much 🌞

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