Safaritalo – Safari House

Nuuksiontie 77, Espoo, Finland
(30 km from Helsinki and from the HEL Airport, 1 km from the Finnish Nature Center Haltia)

The Safari House log villa is located at a peaceful setting surrounded by the wilderness of Nuuksio National Park. A large courtyard with terraces make it possible for large scale of activities and preparing and serving food for even bigger groups. There is also a charming forest pond with a possibility to take a swim from a dock after sauna.

The main hall has a space for meetings for up to 40 people, room for an evening function for 50 people and there is also a smaller bar room for some 10 people for example for smaller group work.

Meeting menus, summer grill BBQ dinners with salad buffet, campfire flamed salmon, smoked fish of the season or After Ski fondue dinner by the fireplace are all well suited to the wilderness atmosphere of the Safari House.

Food is prepared at our own kitchen on-site from fresh seasonal ingredients.

Meals can also be delivered from the Safari House kitchen to the Karhunpesä Villa, tepee and anywhere where the outdoor activity takes place. Safari House and sauna facilities have licensing rights.

Both body and soul relax totally in the gentle ‘LÖYLY’, steams of the wood-heated sauna and the hot water tubs. The open fireplace adds to the cozy atmosphere. You can dip into the forest pond for a swim either in summer or in the winter.

The Safari House serves well as a base for various activities like yard games for winter or summer, cross golf, archery, axe throwing, alpine curling and hiking with trails departing straight from courtyard to the beautiful landscape of the National Park.

From the shore of the Safari House one can go rowing, canoeing and kayaking or take a cruise on lake Pitkäjärvi on Viking Boat Helga.

The Swing Hill Ski Center / Nuuksio Bikepark is located right next door, so you can reach the slopes directly from the courtyard. The Finnish Nature Center Haltia is only 700 m away from the Safari House, so a visit to the Nature Exhibition can easily be combined to your program package.

Camping -level accommodation can be found in the yard's small 4-bed cottages, with two bunk beds and electric heating. The camping cabins are used summertime.
