Description of Nuuksio National Park

 

To get to Nuuksio National Park you can take a train to Espoo and then get a #85 or #85A bus to the entrance of the nature reserve. Nuuksio National Park reserve covers an area of 45 km2 (17 mi2) of beautiful landscape of pine forests, boulders and numerous lakes and rivers carved by the glaciers during last Ice Age. A web of trails stretch for a total length of 30 km. Some of the most common animals you can see here are elks, Siberian flying squirrels (Pteromys volans) that are usually active and night and many birds that come to this pristine wilderness to nest. Ducks that are commonly seen in the Nuuksio National Park are not very shy. So if you want to feed them bring some bread. Most of them will not refuse a free snack.
