Haltia - The Finnish Nature Centre is a nature and outdoor center, where you get a real experience of the Finnish nature. Haltias' nature exhibitions introduce you to the magnificent scenery of Finlands National Parks, as well as nature sites in the nature capital area.
The building itself is a "must see": a combination of Finnish design, wood, sustainable elements and Kalevala, the Finnish national epic.
The sustainable Haltia is the gate to Nuuksio National Park. You are surrounded by hiking trails and the view of Nuuksio Pitkäjärvi Lake.
