Day 1: Cycling in Helsinki Central Park forest paths
Pass By: Central Park, 00630 Helsinki, Finland
We kindly ask you to arrive at our office at 9:00 in the morning, so we can prepare your e-bikes and brief you about the equipment. When everything is ready, you will start cycling along winding forest paths in Helsinki Central Park. This forest stretches like a green belt all the way from city center to airport. It’s great for commuting, picking berries or just relaxing. Common animals include deer, fox and rabbit. Many of the tracks are used for cross country skiing in winter. Visit the Haltiala fields and Domestic Animal Farm, where you can see cows, sheep, pigs, etc. Just next to the farm is Cafe Wanha Pehtoori, which serves food and drinks in a pretty old house. Strongly recommended! In season, it’s even possible to pick flowers and peas from the city-owned fields. Continue west on cycle ways, and in the afternoon arrive at Lake Bodom district, which has been farmed for centuries. Check in at Kaisankoti Wellness Manor, beautifully situated on old horse ranch grounds from the 17th century. Relax in the sauna and pool facilities. Overnight at Kaisankoti.
