Finnish Nature Centre Haltia

Welcome to the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia

The Finnish Nature Centre Haltia brings the crown jewels of the Finnish wilderness together under a single roof. It is the gateway to all of Finland's national parks, treating visitors to the pleasures of nature through all five senses. The national treasure of the metropolitan area, the Nuuksio National Park, is just next door with its lakes, forests, valleys, mires and rocks that provide the perfect setting for excursions. Haltia provides high-class event and restaurant services. Haltia's Nature School organises inspiring trips to Nuuksio, particularly for lower secondary stage students.
