Lammassaari, Helsinki :: Helsinki Adventures


There's a whole slew of places here in Helsinki worth a mornings time. Lamassaari has been on our adventure list for quite sometime and an extended open weekend felt like the perfect chance to get a glimpse of the place. We're so glad we did.

Having kids, we have a rule that the first time we check a place out (at least if it's nearby,) we don't stay very long. We normally don't know exactly where we're going and the second time around we're able to plan better for trails (stroller? no stroller? Restrooms?) and prepare appropriately for more time spent. So while the trip was short, it was just enough for a little girl to get tired legs and enough for my wilderness need to be subdued for a bit.

One awesome perk about Finland, especially southern Finland is the lack of bugs at this time of year. You'd expect with the  marsh for the bugs to be thick, but we didn't see much of any. We DID however get to see several birds, baby goslings, and lots of little ants (I guess I just count flying insects as bugs...) Eowyn getting a walking stick was the icing on the cake for her.  

It was well worth the 20 or so minute drive up, and I'm definitely looking forward to going again.
