The Kirkkonummi Adventure – Porkkalanniemi peninsula

Thump, thump! The thumping of feet on rock can be heard under our feet.

Our movement effect is low. We need charging.

A few thumps later: We’re sitting around a campfire site.

The sweet hot chocolate milk is filled with energy.

The high cliffs, the maritime views and the well-maintained campfire sites of Porkkalanniemi calls hikers into nature. The majestic cliffs, the pine trees, the numerous species of birds and the fantastic sea views are typical sightings in Porkkalanniemi. The cooking shelters are right near the parking areas, and thus even families with children have an opportunity for outdoor recreation. Making a fire is only allowed at specifically marked constructed campfire sites.
