As seen in The Sunday Times, combine wilderness days with an urban stay on this short break in Finland. Spend nights in a luxury glamping lodge at the unique and superbly sustainable Haltia Lake Lodge, just 45 minutes from Helsinki. Embrace restorative outdoor activities in Nuuksio National Park before getting a fix of city culture in the country's vibrant capital.
Day 1 | Arrive in Finland
Arrive in Helsinki and transfer to Haltia Lake Lodge, a luxurious eco retreat located in Nuuksio National Park. The lodge has a strong focus on sustainability. Powered completely by wind energy, this luxury lodge aims to be carbon neutral by 2023. Check-in to your spacious and incredibly well-equipped glamping lodge for a three-night stay.
Day 2 | Guided Hike & Hot Stone Massage
Enjoy breakfast this morning before embarking on a guided hike in the beautiful nature of Nuuksio National Park. Soak up the vista from viewpoints, and visit rock formations, caves and pristine lakes. Later in the afternoon, enjoy a hot stone massage to relax body and mind. Return to the lodge for dinner in the evening before sleeping among the trees.
Day 3 | Outdoor Forest Yoga & Helsinki
After breakfast, head to the lake for a tranquil forest yoga class focusing on energising the body and mind. Later in the afternoon transfer to the fabulous Scandic Grand Central in the heart of Helsinki. Why not dine at the wonderful Krog Roba Restaurant (the city’s former police station) in the evening.
Day 2 | Helsinki Sightseeing & Sauna Experience
Spend the morning sightseeing. Perhaps visit Amos Rex, an art museum with a large collection of modern art located under Lasipalatsi, a 1930s shopping centre known as the ‘Glass Palace.
