      Finnish archipelago adventure
      Wonderful experience from booking initially with Kiia , and culminating with a great day in the care of Jeff. Jeff was knowledgeable and caring about the environment and he made a mean fish soup! The walk was gentle but interesting and the lunch point by the sea was perfect. Short but wonderful introduction to the Finnish countryside. Do yourself a favour and support these guys doing a great job!

      Magical winter experience
      This was our favorite hiking tour in Finland! Jeff was very kind and knowledgeable of the forest. He educated us a lot during our hike and provided us with amazing food. This is a must if you are staying in Helsinki! You will be connecting with nature in a very special way.

      Great experience!
      Fabulous hike through the woods! The walk is pretty easy going and the terrain quite flat (depending on how much snow I suppose) and the guides were extremely knowledgable, friendly and helpful. The little camp that you arrive at to have lunch is beautiful as it is set by a frozen lake. Also it is worth mentioning that there are non-flushing toilets at the comp (as hadn’t noticed many other reviews pointing this out and I had wondered this myself!). Overall a great experience to see a bit more of Finland and would recommend to everyone staying in Helsinki :) Thanks guys!

      Fun and easy experience
      Such a fun and easy way to experience Finland's nature. I booked at short notice and had an amazing time with such a knowledgeable and friendly guide. The Salmon soup was excellent as well. I couldn't recommend this experience more!

      A lovely day out from Helsinki
      I chose this tour as I wanted to see a bit of the Finnish countryside during a short trip to Helsinki. The trip was really well organised. Great communication before the trip and really easy to find Jeff and his minibus on the day. The group of eight was a really nice number. Jeff was really engaging with his knowledge of fauna and flora. Not only did he accommodate my vegan dietary requirements, but the soup was really delicious and thank you for finding a vegan runebergintorttu!

      Taiga Times: A Scenic Adventure Unveiling Nature's Splendor in Helsinki
      We had an absolutely fantastic experience with Taiga Times! Our guide, Jeff, made our day truly memorable as he expertly led us through the breathtaking national park. The day was filled with awe-inspiring landscapes, and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment of our leisurely walk. The beauty of the surroundings was beyond words, and Jeff's knowledge and enthusiasm added an extra layer to our exploration. If we find ourselves back in Helsinki, there's no doubt we'll be booking another tour with Taiga Times to create more wonderful memories.

      An absolutely lovely experience!
      Jeff was a friendly and knowledgable guide. This trip was an excellent way to get out of Helsinki and explore Finnish nature. The food was delicious and I appreciated that they provided gluten-free options. Overall, this was a pleasant and informative experience...the perfect way to end my trip to Finland! I highly recommend Taiga Times!

      Must-do experiences!
      My partner and I booked both the National Park and Smoke Sauna Experience and the Winter Wonderland Hike, which we undertook earlier this month, based on great reviews we had seen and even then the tours completely exceeded our expectations. Jeff was the perfect guide and had such an impressive wealth of knowledge. He generously prepared two different lunches for us for the two tours we took (both delicious!) and always had time to answer our questions. These experiences were the highlight of our trip to Finland and we highly recommend Taiga Times.

      Highlight of our Trip to Helsinki
      My 22 year old daughter and I went on the Magical Forest Hike and a really memorable day . We learnt about foraging , saw some beautiful fungi and had a delicious lunch that our guide had cooked and brought along for us. He was a great communicator and knowledgeable about the plants and animals. We cooked the mushrooms we had collected over a log fire in a cosy hut. It was chilly - but he had the foresight to bring extra layers for anyone that needed it. We would highly recommend this trip , as we absolutely loved it.

      10/10 would recommend!
      This incredible mushroom hunting experience has far exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Jeff, had an infectious passion for mushrooms, berries and nature in general. I now feel confident identifying some common edible mushrooms, like chanterelles! Jeff's cooking was also a delight - our lunch consisted of salmon soup and rye bread, creamy chanterelles, some cake and blueberry juice. Despite the rainy weather, I had an absolute blast and I highly recommend this mushroom hunt!

      Wonderful and magical
      Jeff was so kind and relaxed. He helped us understand the forest and had everything we needed! So nice to not need to carry lunch or a seat pad since it had been wet from the rain. The soup was amazing!! I would recommend this to all nature lovers and those who want to give it a try! Also the forest of Finland are magical I don’t know if there is anyone who couldn’t find something to enjoy.

    I had the pleasure of participating in this wonderful nature tour. Jeff and Kiia are incredibly friendly and sympathetic, and they provided the good atmosphere, knowledge of nature and the most delicious little meal by the fire with a view of the lake. We talked about mushrooms, snakes, trees, ants and berries. Finally, we jumped into the traditional Finnish smoke sauna, which was a huge experience. Being cooled down in the lake afterwards was just one of many wonderful experiences that day. Definitely a big recommendation from me, especially if you are tired of the big city and need to enjoy nature. Thanks a lot to Taiga Times

    This was a truly wonderful experience - we were fortunate to have experienced perfect conditions as the heavy snow had fallen the night before but the whole day was idyllic
    Jeff and Kia were extraordinarily knowledgeable, courteous and kind and everything ran so smoothly. The 6k walk through the national park with the snow covered trees was a delight and the open fire cooked local sausages, veg and cinnamon bun delicious. The smoke sauna and ice pools at the end topped the day off with a plomb - an experience that will live in the mind forever - THANK YOU

    This has definitely been the highlight of our trip. If you have a few days to spend in Helsinki this is a must as it is so different to anything else and allows you to see some of the real Finland, despite only being a short ride out of the city. Jeff was super friendly and knowledgeable. The outdoor swim and sauna is an exhilarating Finnish experience that we will remember for a lifetime.

    This was a great experience for us because of our excellent tour guide Jeff. We hiked the national forest, searched for berries and mushrooms and were served a delicious lunch. Our tour guide made sure that everyone in our 7 person group was able to ask all their questions and have a great time. We then enjoyed a sauna experience and a dip in the lake. Highly recommend this trip. My adult daughter and I couldn’t say enough about how we enjoyed this. Thank you Taiga tours and Jeff!

    This was an absolute amazing adventure. Our guides Jeff and Keya were fantastic. They provided lunch cooked over an open fire, the food was very tasty and very nice. Including hot and cold drinks.
    At the sauna we were provided with towels and flip flops as needed, our guides thought of everything. They were kind, considerate and very informative.
    The pace of the walking was at the pace of the slowest person, so no one was left out or left behind. At first I thought this trip was a little expensive, but now I feel the trip was worth every euro, and a bit more. The scenery was spectacular. The whole trip was excellent, I would highly recommend.

    The hike and sauna experience was fantastic. Jeff was an amazingly knowledgeable guide. He showed and explained all mushrooms and berries that we found in the forest and provided lots of interesting facts.
    The provided lunch was delicious and authentic at a stunning scenery.
    The sauna and swimming in the lake was fantastic and very authentic.

    The organisation before the trip was great and Kiia was very nice. She provided all necessary information and made the booking a pleasant experience.

    I would book this trip any time again if I come back to Helsinki and I would recommend every traveller to book it.

    A wonderful experience with Jeff. We luckily had a 1 on 1 tour as the other members of our group cancelled. Jeff was very friendly and very easy to get a long with.

    The tour through the national forest was amazing and Jeff gave us a lot of information on the Forrest, the types of food and berries that grows there and a lot of information on wildlife.

    We stoped for lunch and Jeff made a lovely
    Campfire lunch, provided drinks and surprised us with a birthday cake adding to the experience to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday!

    Jeff explained the sauna and cold plunge experience really well and what to expect. We really enjoyed this experience and would love to go again.

    Thank you
