David is great host, he's a super experienced tour guide, very knowledgeable, well prepared and we thoroughly enjoyed our walk through the beautiful Finnish woods. David prepared some local soup and treats to try on the way that were absolutely delicious. Thoroughly recommend a walking tour with David!

We highly recommend this excursion with David. He did everything he could to maintain the tour despite the weather; we ended up going to the park in the afternoon and did snowshoes as there was lots of snow. We did parts of a trail and other parts off track, including on a frozen lake. He was really nice and funny and made sure we were happy with everything. He made drinks, had snacks and cooked an amazing homemade mushroom soup we had with a view of the park. A really great time we will not forget!

In the morning I was picked up by David at the hotel. There was already another woman in the car. We three came directly well into conversation, David has already explained a lot about the Finnish nature on the way to the national park. In Nuuksio National Park we have mastered a trail at two lakes/ponds. Amazing how beautiful and green the park is even towards the end of October. The tour really shows many different types of forest. Halfway through the trail we had a warm drink with Finnish cookies and licorice. David specially adapted the path so that our feet stayed dry. At one of the lakes we later ate a delicious homemade mushroom soup.

The trip was a perfect escape into nature, in the summer the tour is probably even more beautiful, but it is also highly recommended in the fall. A really nice trip that I would recommend.

An amazing tour and one not to miss when you visit Helsinki! David picked us up from our hotel and was a very friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. He provided us with snowshoes as well as a tasty mushroom soup and glögi while we were on the hike. We went on the tour in Feb and although you will need to wrap up warm I would highly recommend as walking through the beautiful forest and over frozen lakes in deep snow was magical.

We really enjoyed spending half a day on the trails of Nuuksio National Park, picking berries, looking for mushrooms, drinking glögi from traditional kuksa and eating Finnish sweets and homemade mushroom soup. The scenery was very beautiful and our guide, David, very friendly and knowledgable. We highly recommed this tour!

Our guide David was friendly and very knowledgeable! The trails he choose for us were just right for our skill level. He promised berry picking and he delivered. He was organized with our snack and lunch. Everything was delicious and very hot still!

In November 2021 I had this amazing experience with Backpacker Helsinki Tour. David picked me up right at my location, then we collected all the other members of the tour and we reached the park where we had an amazing day. David know a lot of things about Finland, Helsinki and the National park. Plus he made an amazing soup. The most exiting part of the day? Being able to pick the right berries from the ground and feel the essence of the park. Really suggested!

David is very knowledgeable about the forest and all aspects of Finnish life. I learned a lot of fascinating things during our lovely hike. Nuuksio Forest is really gorgeous.
David tailors his hikes to his guests, so you’ll never feel overwhelmed. He also picks everyone up at their hotels, which is very practical.
He also brought cookies and a traditional Finnish drink, which we had mid morning, and even provided lunch, which was a delicious homemade mushroom soup.
All in all it was the perfect morning.

A really wonderful experience! David was very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about Finnish culture, foraging, and the nature of the area. Would highly recommend it if you have the time and want to escape to the taiga for a little bit!
