Nuuksio’s North Gate
Nuuksio’s North Gate is a unique combination of former manor estate with old buildings and wide tidy grass areas and of the authentic Finnish forests with pine trees and winding paths. The area is still calmer than most of the core locations in the National Park and has been described as a hidden gem!
Nuuksio’s North Gate is located next to the National park, only 30 minutes from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport and 45 minutes from Helsinki city centre. Here you are guaranteed to have serene and pure nature around you without a trace of city buzz.

Wine in the Woods is a two-hour exploration into a world, where wine and the forest meet. Our expert guides will take you on a new type of journey through flavours and aromas in our wine bar in the middle of the woods. After a short forest-bathing walk our senses will become attuned to our surroundings. Then we set foot into the forest’s al fresco tasting area which lives and breathes by the seasons offering a completely new encounter each time. Here the tastes and scents of wine and forest will come alive through the stories binding them together.

Taste of Wilderness
Would you fancy a bite of an ancient Finnish cuisine of fire and smoke? To have an unforgettable dinner full of forest flavours? Surrounded by balmy evergreen woods in the fading evening light accompanied with a mighty bonfire. Our guides know the secrets of the local woods and are willing to share their expertise with you. They will take you to the finest forest table where a wildfood menu will be prepared for you on an open fire. You will be served the best seasonal ingredients.
In Finland we have a world-class chance for fishing, hunting, picking mushrooms and berries and gathering other edible plants straight from the nature. That’s also what we would like to offer you: fresh and pure berries, mushrooms, fish, game and wild herbs. You will hear stories about the ingredients and learn about the methods we use when using open fire for cooking.
We are all about local products and environmental sustainability from the beginning to the end, which guarantees a healthy meal and the best culinary experience.
The grande finale of a Finnish outdoor meal is tasty and sweet – pancakes in the woodland style! Traditional pot coffee and herbal tea is also served.
And when we serve dinner there is no rush to leave the fireside. Take your time and have a second cup.
