More Than Sports

You don’t have to be an over-enthusiastic athlete to enjoy Nuuksio. The beautiful forest area also has beautiful lakes lined by smooth rocks, perfect for setting up a relaxed picnic.

The area is also perfect for a leisurely stroll in the midst of nature. It’s incredible how much even a short trip to a natural surrounding can relax you. Listening to nature’s sounds – babbling brooks, songbirds, bristling trees – is like free therapy!dsc_00442
