Outdoor attractions by public transport
The Helsinki metropolitan area is home to dozens of fascinating outdoors attractions. Our customers are most interested in public transport services to the national parks of Sipoonkorpi and Nuuksio. There is a good reason for this: national parks cover vast areas of land and they have several entrances, known as “gates”. There is a scarcity of parking spaces, especially during peak season.
One of the perks of using public transport is that you can arrive in one place and leave from another. Sometimes it is best to plan your trip so that your destination offers better public transport connections. This allows a certain flexibility in your travelling if the duration of the trip is not known.
Sipoonkorpi National Park
The Sipoonkorpi National Park has several gates. Kuusijärvi, Landbo and Sotunki are the easiest to reach by public transport.
Update on 26 April 2022: The City of Vantaa and the Municipality of Sipoo will provide a separate bus route for the summer of 2022. The bus will run from Tikkurila station, Mellunmäki Metro Station and Nikkilä to some of the gates at Sipoonkorpi. HSL tickets are not valid on the bus, but the route and timetable for the bus will be available in the Journey Planner.

Nuuksio National Park
Nuuksio, the most well-known national park i Southern Finland, has one gate that is the favorite among travellers: the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia and Haukkalampi. The downside is that the gate might get crowded during peak season. During hiking seasons and especially on weekends, it is advisable to consider using some other gate, such as the one in Siikaniemi.
