In February-April 2016 I specialized to be an Urban & Nature guide. This is something very Finnish and very Helsinki: close to nature as we are. Helsinki is surrounded by the sea and forests, lakes and farming landscapes are only some twenty minutes ride away from the city center. This is one of the strong points of Helsinki, the nature is there, and we Helsinkians enjoy it every day, throughout the year. We are Nordic walking, jogging, ice-swimming, taking the bike to work- never-mind-the weather, SUPping, sailing, and exercising many other forms of outdoor life. At the same time we love our city life: the historical city centre, our museums and restaurants and the active urban lifestyle growing more active all the time.
