What are we going to do

So often I've heard tourists saying they can't make it to Helvetinjärvi National Park (Hell's Lake National Park) simply because of lack of public transportation. Hence I decided to start day trips to Helvetinkolu (Hell's Gorge). Helvetinkolu is known as one of the most beautiful sceneries in Finland and it is a really popular day trip spot for Finns and tourists.

The walk is about 4-5 km in an easy forest route. In the midpoint of the route is the Gorge's viewpoint and a campfire spot by Hell's Lake. You can dip in the lake if the weather is summery! I will prepare a campfire for our lunch. Sausages/vegan sausages and "stick buns" are included in the tour price.

Join me for a day in Finnish nature! We leave from Tampere from a location of your choice, and we can decide among ourselves the starting time of the tour. The tour should last about 8 hours but the time is flexible if needed.

If the dates and times don't go along your holiday plans, don't hesitate to ask for different times!

About Heli - the Doer

I am born and raised in Tampere and love this city. I used to work for the tourism organisation of the city and learned a lot during that time. Can't wait to show you my hometown!
In spirit I am a creative mind and I write a travel blog DramaOnTheRoad.com. I'm social, love meeting new people and laugh a lot.
My calendar is quite an open book so please - if I haven't opened an experience for your desired dates, don't hesitate to ask.

Requirements

Good walking shoes are required. There are many stairs and steps to take. The route is rather a wide street all the way, so dress according to weather. Basic good physics is good to have (for the long stairs).

I loved the tour! This was my first trip to Tampere, and this was a lovely way to start the day. Beautiful area and nice way of getting to know the atmosphere and scenery in Pispala. I also got nice tips and information for the rest of the day in Tampere.
Heli managed to take nice pictures even though I am not used to be in the front of the camera. I do recommend this tour 😍 Thank you so much Heli!

I loved the tour. So nice to chat with local people, get to know the area more and get some pictures too as it is always difficult to take pictures when travelling alone. Thank you! I recommend this tour!
