Meiko

Meiko Nature Preserve is located nearby Kirkkonummi and the best time to visit Meiko is during the week as the weekends can be quite crowded.

You can either hike around the lake or just grill your sauges at one of the campfire sites. Firewood is also provided at the fire pits. Here I took great pictures during the blue hour with the moon. Plus, you can’t hear the traffic here either, so you really feel like you’re in the wilderness.


Porkkalanniemi

I visited Porkkalanniemi several times in spring and winter. Porkkalanniemi is one of the most beautiful Finnish coasts because it is one of the few places that opens directly to the open sea. It is located south of Kirkkonummi and is easily accessible by car.

In Porkkalanniemi, there are great facilities such as fire pits, tables, information boards, dry toilets, marked paths, and benches. Porkkalanniemi is also very close to Estonia – only 36 km away and is also a popular spot for bird watchers.

There is also a military-naval base, which I have not yet seen myself and the Rönnskär Lighthouse which is quite good visible from the birdwatching tower.

There are three hiking trails on Porkkalanniemi – the Vetokannaksentaival trail, the Telegrafbergetin-Lenkki trail and the Pampskatanin-Pisto trail.
