O que irá fazer
We will meet at easy-to-reach Arabianranta final stop for trams 6 and 8. From tram stop we hike to most important nature reserve in Helsinki: Viikki-Vanhankaupunginlahti Nature Reserve. The area is build of forests, alder marshes, fields and meadows. Plant and animal is abundant, which makes Viikki-Vanhankaupunginlahti bay a place of great interest nature enthusiasts. It is an oasis in the middle of urban Helsinki. This trip is a perfect add-on if you want to see nature on your otherwise urban travel experience. On a hike around Vanhankaupunginlahti and to Lammassaari and Kuusiluoto we have some group activities and stop for bird watching by bird-hides and towers. In Kuusiluoto you will hear about lives of local fisherman and how they made they living helping smugglers at the times of prohibition. We may also see some urban sheeps living on island. In Kuusiluoto we have a picnic lunch: Finnish style creamy mushroom soup with fresh rye bread, coffee, tea and blueberry pie. We consider your diets and offer also tasty vegan and gluten-free alternatives. After lunch guide walks you back to tram stop. Pouring rain and a slushy snowstorm is a big part of Finnish lifestyle. That's why our hike will be organised in every weather throughout a year. So wear warm waterproof clothes. We follow principals of sustainability
O seu anfitrião
I am a professional wilderness and nature guide with an official education. Helsinki is my original home town though I have been living on a countryside last couple of years. I find nature beautiful, wild but safe, calming and inspiring. I know how to stay and hike safely in a Finnish nature. Last two years I have been traveling around Finland and Nordic hiking, ski touring, mountain biking, bike packing and kayaking. I have been going on extreme conditions: sleeping outside in -20 degrees and paddling against the strong wind in a high waves. But what always touches me most is quietness of Finnish forest, archipelago and fells. That I want to share with people - the magic and sound of silence.
