Our walk begins on a forest trail leading to an open-rock area which is the first display of the many diverse areas Porkkala has to offer. This open-rock area will give us the opportunity to see what effects coastal weather has on the near-by forest. Pine trees that are used to standing tall and true are forced to grow into short disfigured trees which reach for the forest inland.
As we continue on our tour, we will pass through Finland’s iconic forests to see ruins from of the Nordic bronze age; an ancient burial cairn or stone grave which has since collapsed. This historical site gives insight into the funeral practices and social and religious structures of northern Europe more than three millennia ago.
Shortly after passing the burial cairn we will find ourselves with a picturesque coastal view. There will be picnic tables to have a break and fill up on a prepared lunch with coffee and tea.
The last area of our walk is a highly regarded bird-watching area with magnificent views of the archipelago.
After some exploration in this final area, it is time to head back to civilization refreshed from this wholesome nature experience.
