Espoo - Cottages and Vacation Rentals

Espoo is a city of innovation and exciting experiences right next to Helsinki. The city is like Finland in miniature. To the south, you can enjoy delightful islands and an unspoilt coastline, a rich cultural offering, a wide range of events and activities and great shopping opportunities. Travel north, and you will discover a different Espoo, with lakes, tranquil rural scenery, historic manor houses and the wilderness of Nuuksio National Park.

Nuuksio National Park offers a wealth of opportunities for outdoor pursuits: you can enjoy some action-packed fun or quiet relaxation as part of a city break or pack your rucksack and head out for a whole weekend in the great outdoors. Nuuksio’s lakes, forests, valleys, marshlands and crags offer the ideal setting for a real nature adventure, close to an urban metropolis. At the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia you can fall in love with Finland’s unique flora and fauna.

Holiday ideas

  • Got two hours to spare? Visit the WeeGee Exhibition Centre.
  • Got half a day? Visit the Finnish Nature Centre Haltia and explore the stunning nature surrounding it.
  • Spending a summer day in Espoo? Hop on a ferry and head out to explore our many islands. You could also visit Nuuksio National Park – you might even spot some reindeer. Or how about a visit to EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art or the Gallen-Kallela Museum, followed by an action-packed treetop adventure at Huippu?
  • Visiting on a wintry day? Take a snowshoe walk through Nuuksio National Park, explore Oittaa on cross-country skis, test your ice skating skills at Tapiola Ice Garden or head for the cosy warmth of one of our many museums.
