In Nuuksio National Park you can escape into wild natural settings and enjoy typically Finnish scenery, with lovely lakes, green forests and rugged crags.
The National Park is located in the border of the oak forest zone and the southern boreal forest zone. The landscape is dominated by valleys and gorges formed by the Ice Age, and barren rocky hills covered by lichen and sparse pine forest. At some places the hills reach the height of 110 metres above the sea level. The breeding birds of the rocky pine forests include Wood Lark (Lullula arborea)and the European Nightjar (Caprimulgus europeaus), which both are threatened species.
It is also possible to see very rare Siberian Flying Squirrel in Nuuksio National Park.
