Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail (Pornaistenniemen luontopolku in Finnish, also known as Luonnon syli) is accessible and it is about a kilometer long. You find picnic tables, a playground for forest play activities and a bird watching tower there. If you follow narrow duckboards (not accessible with a wheelchair or a pushchair) from the bird watching tower, you also find a bird hide. Notice that these duckboards may be slippery sometimes. Nature is very interesting here, because almost 60 polypores and 100 corticoid fungi have been found in the area. If you are interested in a longer trail, I recommend that you follow wide and accessible duckboards to Lammassaari and perhaps narrow duckboards even further to Kuusiluoto. Read separate Tripadvisor reviews about Lammassaari and Kuusiluoto.

    Uutela nature trail is an easy and not overly long path close to the city where you can see varied nature, ranging from scenic sea views to pinewoods, shady sprucewoods, broadleaf forests and rustic fields.
    It’s also easy to wander off the marked path without a big risk of getting lost, as the area is compact enough.
    If you want to experience something more distant to civilisation though, head to Sipoonkorpi national park about 15 minutes drive away.

    The 3.3 km long trail starts and ends at the Maunula hiking lodge. From the lodge, you can find a cafe, a sauna, and picnic tables outside.

    The trail shows you the picturesque and diverse nature of Helsinki's Central Park. There are 11 nature trail boards in the terrain, from which you can learn more about the plants and the animals.

    Fastholma Bird Watching Tower (Fastholman lintutorni in Finnish) is situated in Herttoniemi. Notice that Fastholma Bird Watching Tower isn't the same bird watching place as Kivinokka Bird Watching Platform (Kivinokka Outdoor Recreation Area). Fastholma Bird Watching Tower is located two kilometers from Herttoniemi Metro Station. I recommend that you choose the walking route next to Saunalahti Bay (from Hiihtäjäntie Street). This route is very beautiful and so is the bird watching tower. There is a private house next to the tower. Don't disturb the private area, please. Follow the sign "Lintutorni". If you keep walking north towards Viikki Arboretum, you find several other bird watching towers, too.
