Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Nuuksio is a great park suitable as for families with kids (short routes from 2 km) and for people without kids (routes up to 8 km). Nature is beautiful as everywhere in Finland.

    There are also some open places for grill but keep in mind that they are usually occupied within popular hours so take a sandwich just in case :)

    Espoo Museum of Modern Art (EMMA) is competing with Kiasma Art Museum in Helsinki. Espoo Museum is located in a grey dull building which is the former Weilin&Göös printing house from 1974. What it takes to buildings, Kiasma is located in a more striking building with more interesting architecture.

    What it takes to exhibitions, it is hard to say which one is better. On this Espoo visit, there was a stunning exhibition "Chiharu Shiota: Tracing Boundaries". It is an immersive installation consisting of tautly crisscrossing threads. Visitors are entering the maze of yarn, which encloses a sequence of old doors that open alternative routes through the work.

    Another impressive work was "Daniel Buren: Going for a Walk in a Zigzag". Buren created this enormous work consisting of countless folding screens, inviting visitors to take a walk through the zigzagging maze.

    Daniel Buren is famous for his practice of using 8.7 cm-wide vertical stripes as a visual tool to reveal hidden aspects of familiar spaces. In May, you can find 105 striped flags filling Espoo’s Tapionaukio square. Museum’s personnel have also striped vests.

    Kaitalampi in Espoo is the perfect forest area and lake to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital area in Finland. Only about 35 minutes from Helsinki, Kaitalampi lake in Luukki recreation area provides nice trails and several cooking shelters for spending a day outdoors.

    I visited Halita nature centre during the off season, after completing a short hike in the surrounding forest before it opened for the morning. The building is quite open and airy, being completely sustainable. On arrival there are hiking leaflets showing routes and trails together with other information leaflets about accommodation, transport and general wildlife safety for the local area.

    The floor is completely wooden so you are encouraged to take off your hiking boots and put on light sandals as you walk around the centre so to not cause damage to the floor. There are small shoe/boot lockers for you to do this (free to use) and doing so actually means you can experience the exhibition hall a little better.

    The exhibition hall itself has a high vaulted ceiling, and the floor is made up of different material and fabrics – all designed to mimic the natural environment. For example, leaves and wood, taking off your shoes will actually help this effect. Surround sound and projections onto the wall and ceiling of different scenery (streams, hillsides, forests, lakes etc) during different seasons all compliment these senses. It’s quite beautiful and relaxing. To the sides there are small areas for the children to experience what it is like for different animals. There is a small dark ‘den’ that children can crawl into complete with small bear to simulate hibernation. I spent about 25 minutes in the hall, but there isn’t a huge amount besides this area to see inside the building itself.

    There is a small basement area with toilets and examples of different insects together with a research room and staff area, and on the upper floor a large café/restaurant area. I didn’t use this so can’t comment on food and costs. Toilets were kept clean, however. I did visit the shop in the centre and the products were presented nicely and all wilderness related, with a clear majority all being local and sustainable. Prices were a little expensive however.

    The outside area of the centre comprises of some tipi’s which can be hired out to groups (I’m assuming for events?) and had a picture exhibition taken by a wildlife photographer all about wolves. I found this quite interesting, although is quite small.

    Staff were knowledgeable and helpful. The lady who welcomed me in also pointed out a good viewing point that I could visit that was only about a 25 minute walk away. I took her advice and wasn’t disappointed in the view when I got there. Had she not mentioned this I would have missed out. One of the benefits of visiting in the low season in the morning is that there are few other people around.

    I was able to get the 245 bus back to Espoo which is about a 30-minute journey with the same timeframe of frequency. There are also 2 small parking areas near the centre. I can imagine the area teaming with tourists in the height of summer so would definitely recommend visiting during the shoulder or low season to make the most of the experience.

    The place is nice and something that has been missing in this area. Anyway, the outside pools are really really crowded. The entrance from outside to the showers always smells like a wet dog.
    Children love it.

    This was our work crews first escaperoom experience and it was fun! The rooms were planned with care and it was really like stepping in to a different world. The worker who guided us during the experience was excellent. Thank you for the great time!

    Perfect place to spend 3 h with friends and kids. The easiest routes are suitable from abt 6 yrs, whereas the black more demanding routes were challenging for a sporty 11 year old.

    What should I wear ? Jogging shoes, andnfitting clothes. In the summer shorts and t-shirt probably a good choice.

    Do I have to be fit and agile to enjoy this ? Not really, just open minded and not afraid of hights. The routes’ heights vary from 1 1/2 meter up to 18 m. A little bit scary for some, but you feel safe all the time.

    Friendly staff. Expect to pay 100 euros for 2 adults & 2 kids.
