Obviously people come here to do some hiking, there are few marks treks, 2, 4 or 7 km. All are easy to walk and often you will see the whole family with very small children walking here. You do not need any special preparations or to be in any good conditions to do hiking here, everyone can do it.
Well, this is not a town or a village, it is a real National Park which mean when you come to visit here, after you enter the park and pass this spot where is the office (and a place to buy drink or coffee) you are in the wilderness and all alone in the forest.
It is also possible to visit this beautiful park in the winter. Just be aware that some tracks will be ice covered and slippery so be prepared with the right shoes and winter gear for the appropriate weather.
The Nuuksio National Park is just perfect place in the summer. It is easy to walk deep into the forest, go for a swim in the lake and stay over night for camping. Just be aware that it is very popular and intent to be crowded in the weekends.
What do we see when we enter the savage nature, strive in the forests, walk the hills, mountains - just in short - are outside?
What did our ancestors see, what did they believe they saw? without scientific explanations, without illuminated reason?
Are there such things as antropomorphic rocks (rocks with traits of human faces)? Or is it just what we want to see?
I believe that our explanations are no better than the ones our ancestors gave. It just strikes me about every time I go out in the woods: how on earth could they live here without all the conveniences we have today? They must have had some sort of communication with nature. They had a different relation ship with nature than we have now adays. What has happened?
